Wellington & Wairarapa Region’s top builds announced

A Masterton home and a Karori renovation have been announced as this year’s finest Wellington & Wairarapa homes, winning Supreme Awards in the Wellington Wairarapa Registered Master Builders 2016 House of the Year competition.

Richard Sexton Builders Limited won four regional awards with the Masterton home, including the Wellington Wairarapa Registered Master Builders 2016 Supreme House of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the Nulook New Home $650,000 - $1 million award, and the Craftsmanship Award.



Planit Construction was awarded the Wellington Wairarapa Registered Master Builders 2016 Supreme Renovation of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the Renovation Award over $500,000.



Judges said the winning Masterton home encompasses a successful modern structure that sympathises with the environment.

“The clever interplay of space and light throughout the home, and the harmonious integration between the spaces generates a home built for comfortable living that has clearly met the clients’ brief.

“The home wraps around a courtyard that has a detailed timber screen providing privacy from the road. The large, private and sheltered outdoor entertaining space is accessed from most rooms of the home.

“This home is a beautifully crafted response to the needs of the client.”

Judges said the winning Karori renovation was a very successful and the transition between old and new has been seamless.

“This large home has undergone a major makeover transforming it into one of grandeur. Thoughtful planning coupled with excellent workmanship has enabled the builder to produce a high standard finish throughout.

“We congratulate the builder for his contribution and efforts to making this a successful outcome for the homeowner and all those involved.”

The results of the regional competition were revealed at a gala dinner on 5 August at Te Papa Museum. The winning builds were celebrated by members of the Wellington Wairarapa Registered Master Builders Association and members of the local construction industry.

There were 12 Gold Award winners from Wellington & Wairarapa 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 the 2016 House of the Year and Renovation of the Year will be announced at a gala dinner on 26 November at The Langham in Auckland.

The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, Master Build Services, GIB, Nulook, Future-Proof Building, Carters, Plumbing World, Resene and Bunnings Trade.
