National finalists revealed in NZ building competition

Media Release: 5 September 2013

National finalists revealed in New Zealand’s premier residential building competition

One hundred homes built by 87 New Zealand builders have been announced as Gold Reserve National Finalists in the Registered Master Builders 2013 House of the Year.

Representing the top entrants in this year’s 11 regional competitions held in July and August, the Gold Reserve National Finalists will now contend for the country’s top residential building honours. The national awards will be announced at a gala dinner in Auckland on 16 November.

With each home, finalists have the opportunity to win one of the 12 national categories, which include renovations, new builds, show homes and builders own homes, as well as four Lifestyle Awards and the two ultimate accolades – the Supreme Awards for the House of the Year and the Renovation of the Year.

Registered Master Builders Federation Chief Executive Warwick Quinn says the House of the Year is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the excellent work undertaken by its members.

“Building excellence is at the heart of everything Registered Master Builders stands for, and this is exhibited through the 100 new homes and renovations built by our members that have been recognised as Gold Reserve National Finalists this year,” he says.

“Our builders take huge pride in their work and bringing their clients’ dreams and aspirations to life. We are proud to recognise and celebrate that.”

The National Gold Reserve Finalists’ properties will now be re-judged over the next few months before the National Category, Lifestyle and Supreme Award winners are announced in November.

The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, James Hardie, GIB, Nulook, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Future-Proof Building, Carters, ITM, Plumbing World, Resene and Westpac.

Gordon Campbell:
On Tomorrow’s Speeches By John Key And
Andrew Little

The Key government has already kicked off the political year on a stridently ideological note, with Environment Minister Nick Smith choosing to lay all manner of sins at the door of the Resource Management Act.

Tomorrow, the government will wheeling out its best salesman – Prime Minister John Key – to sell its plans for state housing, which happens to be another of the government’s most contentious, most ideologically-driven policy packages. Presumably, Key will be trying not to double down on the rhetoric, and thereby leave room for Labour leader Andrew Little to sound like the centrist voice of reason.

Key will have his work cut out, though. More>>

 

Transport: Auckland Looks To Light Rail

The Board of Auckland Transport has called for an investigation into a light rail network, which could relieve traffic congestion on some of the region’s busiest roads.

Gordon Campbell: On Ian Fletcher Resignation & GCSB’s New Role

It may well be that after being shoulder-tapped in Queensland for the GCSB job, three years of living in Wellington has been enough for Fletcher and his family, given that the pending review of the GCSB would have required an even longer commitment from him. Three years of Wellington’s weather is enough for anyone... More>>

Ian Apperley: $10m Or $100m For New Wellington Council IT System?

I feel a Tui Billboard coming on. I commented the other day that it looked like the Council’s Ninth big project was a potential $100 million plus...
