East Coast region’s finest homes revealed
A new home build in Havelock North has been named this year’s top East Coast region home, winning the Supreme Award in the East Coast Registered Master Builders 2013 House of the Year.
Napier’s Homeworx Design & Build Limited scooped five regional awards, including the Registered Master Builders Supreme Award for the House of the Year and the PlaceMakers New Homes $350,000 - $450,000 category. The company also secured the Craftsmanship Award, the Plumbing World Bathroom Excellence Award, and the Resene Sustainable Home Award.
The judges said, “This north-facing home absolutely brims with personality, taking full advantage of the Hawke’s Bay sun.
“Polished concrete floors generate an impressive marbling effect which doubles as a passive storage bank, and use of double glazing, solar heating panels and insulation generates a level of sustainability the builder can be proud of.
“Cleverly creating an illusion of space and paying finite attention to detail, this is an excellent response by the builder to achieve a sustainable home with a lot of character on a modest budget.”
The region’s builders were recognised by members of the East Coast Region Registered Master Builders and the local building industry at Mission Estate Restaurant Napier on Saturday, 20 July.
There were 7 Gold Award winners from the East Coast Region which will now be assessed alongside Gold Award winners from the 10 other regions of the competition to find the National Gold Reserve finalists, which will be announced in August.
National category winners, and Registered Master Builders Supreme Awards for the Renovation of the Year and the House of the Year will be announced at a gala dinner in Auckland in November.
The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, James Hardie, GIB, Nulook, Future-Proof Building, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Carters, ITM, Plumbing World, Resene and Westpac.
