Building Today October 2017
A striking Timaru home has taken out a Supreme Award at the Registered Master Builders 2017 House of the Year competition.
Richard Phiskie of Dimension Building Limited was awarded the Mid and South Canterbury Registered Master Builders 2017 Supreme House of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the New Home $550,000 to $700,000 award. Plus, the company also won the Craftmanship Award for the same Timaru property.
Mr Phiskie says winning the Supreme Award was an exciting moment for his team, and adds another notch to the company’s belt. Dimension Building Limited have now won a staggering 15 House of the Year awards since they started entering the competition three years ago.
“We are incredibly proud of the team. This Supreme Award demonstrates we are consistently producing high quality work and it really helps us build our company’s profile and reputation in the community,” he says.
The judges were impressed with the way the home was designed for the site and praised its striking entry from the street.
“The exterior flows inside, drawing you in and exposing you to the stylish interior. This then flows out to the private outdoor living area.”
“The use of multiple cladding in the design has created many bespoke details that required accurate and precise finishing. The builder has executed the detailing perfectly, with every aspect of the build showing a high level of workmanship and passion for the project.”
“It was a pleasure to judge this outstanding home.”
The result reflects the collaborative effort made by the homeowners and builders. Mr Phiskie says the use of materials and its interior design make it a stand out.
“The homeowners put a lot of trust in me with regards to the design and layout of the home, but they played a major part in nailing the interior design. It was definitely a collaborative effort. We are incredibly pleased with the very cohesive result,” he says.
“There were a few challenges throughout the build though, especially with the low roof pitch – this was tricky to get right but we managed it really well.”
Mr Phiskie praises the Registered Master Builders Association for the recognition afforded to members through House of the Year, and the networking opportunities provided to members.
“It really showcases our high standard of work in every single job we complete, and the pride we take in our work,” he says.
The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, Master Build Services, GIB, Nulook, CARTERS, Plumbing World, Resene and Bunnings Trade.
