100 House of the Year National Finalists Announced

One hundred homes built by 84 builders across New Zealand have been named as Gold Reserve National Finalists in the country’s premier residential building awards, the Registered Master Builders 2014 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 be scrutinised by the national judging panel to find out who will take out the ultimate accolades of the National Supreme Awards for House of the Year and Renovation of the Year.

Finalists also have the opportunity to win one of the 12 national categories, which include renovations, new homes, builder’s own homes and show homes, as well as four Lifestyle Awards. The results will be announced at a gala dinner in Auckland on Saturday, 15 November.

Registered Master Builders acting chief executive Brendon Ward says the competition is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the country’s finest builders.

“Building excellence is central to what we do as Registered Master Builders, and the impeccable workmanship and high standard of the homes entered in this year’s competition proves that quality is still our highest priority,” he says.

“We’re very proud to celebrate the work undertaken by the builders who have been named as Gold Reserve finalists this year.”

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 & Employment, Future-Proof Building, Carters, ITM, Plumbing World, Resene, Westpac and Master Build Services.
