Auckland region’s top home builds announced 4 August 2018

A Devonport home and a Kohimarama renovation have won this year’s Supreme Awards in the Auckland Registered Master Builders 2018 House of the Year competition. 

W. G. de Gruchy Construction Limited won six regional awards at the competition. They were awarded the Auckland Registered Master Builders 2018 Supreme House of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the New Home over $2 million award for their Devonport home. They were also awarded the Craftmanship Award, Plumbing World Bathroom Excellence Award and the Heart of the Home Kitchen Award. 

Hargraves Homes Ltd was awarded the Auckland Registered Master Builders 2018 Supreme Renovation of the Year, along with a Gold Award and Category win for the Renovation over $1 million award. 

Judges said the winning House of the Year was a spectacular build, that made extensive use of New Zealand natural materials.

“This is a well-designed and functional house. It’s high ceilings and clerestory windows, make it feel very open and spacious.

“Timaru Bluestone has been used for the exterior cladding and for interior feature walls. Totara Riverwood had been used on the fascia, ceilings, soffits and decking, along with Rimu Riverwood for the flooring and skirtings. 

“This house has a warm lived-in feel. The credit must be given to the owners, architect and the team from WG de Gruchy Construction for the stunning build.”

Judges said the winning Renovation of the Year was a detailed renovation that took place while the owners were still living in a part of the home.

“This renovation of a classical 1970s Robert Railley designed home has been crafted to perfection.

“The renovation included remodelling both the two lower levels and adding a new kitchen, bathrooms, and a third level master bedroom, ensuite and study area.  

“The builder executed the bespoke detailing perfectly. Every aspect of this renovation shows a high level of workmanship and passion for the project. It was a real pleasure to judge this outstanding renovation.”

The results of the regional competition were revealed at a gala dinner on 4 August at SkyCity Convention Centre in Auckland. The winning builds were celebrated by Auckland Registered Master Builders Association members and colleagues from the local construction industry.  

There were 46 Gold Award winners from the Auckland region which will now be judged against Gold Award winners from around the country to find the National Gold Reserve finalists.

National category winners and the Registered Master Builders Supreme Awards for House of the Year and Renovation of the Year will be announced at a gala dinner on 24 November at the Cordis Hotel in Auckland. 

The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, Master Build 10-year Guarantee, GIB, Nulook, CARTERS, Plumbing World, Resene and Bunnings Trade.
