Builders to be recognised in national awards

Builders to be recognised in national awards

The Registered Master Builders Federation is extending its successful House of the Year and Commercial Awards programme to further recognise the talent of member companies.

It has announced plans to extend its awards in 2005 competition to include: * Registered Master Builder of the Year - residential * Registered Master Builder of the Year - commercial

Registered Master Builders Federation president Mike Fox said the move would place a greater emphasis on the builders behind the buildings. "These awards will recognise member companies that epitomise the skills, values and attributes of a registered master builder in residential and commercial building.

"This initiative celebrates and rewards New Zealand's leading builders alongside the projects honoured in the House of the Year and Commercial Awards competition," Mr Fox said.

"Up to now the awards focused on the winning building, overshadowing the team of builders behind the project. We want to make sure the people are recognised too," he said.

The extension fits with the Federation's aim to grow and strengthen the awards, now in their fifteenth year.

In 2005, the criteria for the revised awards will remain the same as the current competition. The Registered Master Builder of the Year (residential) winner will be the company or individual that wins the PlaceMakers Supreme Award - the House of the Year. The Registered Master Builder of the Year (commercial) will be awarded to the highest place commercial winner.

The Federation may develop additional criteria around the awards ahead of the 2006 competition and will do this in consultation with sponsors. Criteria could include customer service satisfaction and business skills.
