Jennian Homes among the best of the best

Jennian Homes among the best of the best

Jennian Homes is among the companies vying for New Zealand’s top building honours this weekend, when the supreme winners in the Registered Master Builders’ House of the Year Awards will be announced.

The competition has been raising the bar for building standards in New Zealand for the past two decades – and over the past five, Jennian has been the country’s most awarded builder.

This year, Jennian builders took out a total of 43 awards in the regional competitions, with two gold reserve national finalists, seven gold awards, 11 silver awards, three bronze awards, 11 category winners, one supreme award and eight lifestyle awards for kitchen and bathroom excellence, energy efficiency and outdoor living.

Jennian franchisee Bruce Maetzig says the company is ecstatic about its continued success in the competition. “The competition stands out as an opportunity for builders to showcase their talents and winning an award remains an industry symbol for the best of the best. We’re delighted by the achievements of our franchisees this year, and thrilled judges have named two of our homes among the top 100 in the country for 2010.”

The gold reserve national finalists represent the best of more than 530 entrants in the 19 regional competitions held throughout New Zealand during June, July and August. Among those vying for top honours this year are Jennian’s Coromandel and Nelson Bays franchises.

“We’re incredibly proud to be representing Jennian Homes in the national finals,” says Simon Collett, director of Jennian Homes Nelson Bays. “Winning an award says a lot about the quality of our workmanship and the innovative designs of our homes – there is simply no better way for us to assess the quality of our projects than by being measured by our peers against the leading companies in the industry.”

Stephen Trebilco, who owns and manages the Coromandel franchise, says he’s delighted at the results his team achieved in this year’s awards. “I think we were so successful because we really work for our customers, listen to their wants and needs, and come up with the best possible solution for them. We are dedicated to safe, quality building practices and to making our customers feel comfortable with us.

“These values and practices resonate throughout the Jennian network which is why I believe Jennian continues to be so successful in the House of the Year Awards.”

The national winners will be announced at a gala dinner in Auckland tomorrow night.
