Taranaki Region’s top builds announced

An Opunake home has taken out this year’s Supreme Award in the Taranaki Registered Master Builders 2017 House of the Year competition. 

Custom Construction NZ Limited won five regional awards at the competition, including the Taranaki Registered Master Builders 2017 Supreme House of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the CARTERS New Home $1 million to $2 million award for their Opunake home. They were also awarded the Craftmanship Award and the Outdoor Living Award for the same property. 

Judges said from the moment they walked through the winning House of the Year, it was obvious it was a house built with passion.

“It was clear all tradespeople involved were highly skilled and gave much consideration to every detail, large or small,” they said.

“Its unique design provided a challenge for the building team and one they executed with precision.

“Both internally and externally, the design and construction were well executed providing an outstanding result for the proud homeowner. 
“This Supreme Award is well deserved by a very dedicated team.”

The results of the regional competition were revealed at a gala dinner on 4 August at the Devon Hotel in New Plymouth. The winning builds were celebrated by Taranaki Registered Master Builders Association members and colleagues from the local construction industry.  

There were six Gold Award winners from the Taranaki region, which will now be judged against Gold Award winners from around the country to find the National Gold Reserve finalists.

National category winners and the Registered Master Builders Supreme Awards for House of the Year and Renovation of the Year will be announced at a gala dinner on 25 November at SKYCITY in Auckland. 

The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, Master Build Services, GIB, Nulook, CARTERS, Plumbing World, Resene and Bunnings Trade.

About the Registered Master Builders 2017 House of the Year

The competition is divided into two parts – the first is at a regional level, the second at a national level. Gold, Silver and Bronze Award winners are determined using a points-based system. These award-winners are announced at 10 regional events held throughout New Zealand during July and August.
The top local Gold Award winners become Gold Reserve National Finalists. The national finalists are then re-judged by a panel of judges who determine the overall national winners, which are announced at the National event in Auckland on 25 November.
