NZ Wood are pleased to announce the finalists of the 2014 NZ Wood Resene Timber Design Awards!
As these awards are New Zealand's only Timber Design Awards, there was a great response to enter the Awards again for 2014. 35 projects have been selected for Stage One Finalists. These have gone through to Stage Two judging, which will then select the Highly Commended and Winners of each category. These winners will be announced at a prestigious Presentation Awards Evening on March 18th at the James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor - Wellington.
Tickets for the 2014 NZ Wood Resene Presentation Event will be available soon!
