Call for Entries Highlights Resene and NZ Wood Partnership

Call for Entries Highlights a New Partnership between Resene and NZ Wood

11 May 2012

NZ Wood today announced that Resene, the NZ owned and operated paint manufacturer from Lower Hutt, has committed to a naming rights sponsorship of the 2012 Timber Design Awards.

The competition brings together architects, architectural designers and engineers in a showcase event that builds the passion for timber construction in New Zealand.

Karen Warman, Marketing Manager of Resene, highlighted the affinity between timber and paints and stains – whether for dynamic effect or longevity and protection. “Resene has always enjoyed partnering with the best and the Timber Design Awards enables us to develop new relationships with those that value excellence in timber design – like we do! We are especially pleased that this year’s Awards includes a Canterbury Rebuild category to highlight the significance of the rebuild”.

In announcing the sponsorship Jane Arnott CEO, NZ Wood highlighted how the Timber Design Awards celebrate excellence across functionality and aesthetics. “The versatility of timber offers infinite possibilities for professionals keen to blend beauty and form.”

“We have to remember that it was only a few decades ago that brutalism ruled, now fortunately we have a better appreciation of design as well as the integrity of construction. From curves to filigree, veneers to engineered timber beams only timber can excite, challenge and change to meet every landscape and every client.”

The First Stage Call for Entries closes on Friday 22 June at 5pm. Entry forms are available from
