Southern region’s top home builds announced

Saturday 21 July: Southern region’s top home builds announced


A Queenstown home and a Dunedin renovation have won this year’s Supreme Awards in the Southern Registered Master Builders 2018 House of the Year competition.

A J Saville Builder Limited won five regional awards at the competition. They were awarded the Southern Registered Master Builders 2018 Supreme House of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the New Home over $2 million award for their Queenstown home. They were also awarded the Craftmanship Award and the Heart of the Home Kitchen Award.

A J Saville Builder Limited was also awarded a Gold Award and Category win for the GIB Show Home Award for their Queenstown show home.

W. Hamilton Building Limited was awarded the Southern Registered Master Builders 2018 Supreme Renovation of the Year, along with a Gold Award and Category win for the Master Build 10-Year Guarantee Renovation up to $500,000 award.

The winning House of the Year won over the judges with its immaculate detailing and craftmanship.

“The collection of different building types, functions, cladding and internal finishes are all clustered around a courtyard orientated to maximise views and sun.”

“The buildings are connected by curved double-glazed full-wall units, which required special handling and precise positioning. Everything is immaculately detailed, requiring bespoke construction techniques mostly to follow the curves, in this four-year build.

“The contractor, AJ Saville and the team, should be justly proud of achieving the highest levels of workmanship from the demanding project requirements.”

Judges said the winning renovation of the year is an elegant brick home which has had a new lease of life following the well-thought out renovation.

“Works included relocating the kitchen and living spaces and introducing large bi-folding doors to provide excellent indoor/outdoor flow to the new patio and swim spa. The home has been transformed from a dark impractical home to an open, sunny and very liveable home.

At the same time, the builder has done a fine job in maintaining the traditional style of this home.”

The results of the regional competition were revealed at a gala dinner on 21 July at the Transport Museum in Invercargill. The winning builds were celebrated by Southern Registered Master Builders Association members and colleagues from the local construction industry.

There were 13 Gold Award winners from the Southern 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 24 November at the Cordis Hotel in Auckland.

The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, Master Build 10-year Guarantee, GIB, Nulook, CARTERS, Plumbing World, Resene and Bunnings Trade. For more information about the competition, visit www.houseoftheyear.co.nz.
