Mid and South Canterbury Region’s top home builds announced

14 July 2017
A Timaru home has taken out this year’s Supreme Award in the Mid and South Canterbury Registered Master Builders 2017 House of the Year competition. 

Dimension Building Limited won four regional awards for their Timaru home, including the Mid and South Canterbury Registered Master Builders 2017 Supreme House of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the New Home $550,000 to $700,000 award. The company also won the Craftmanship Award for the same property.

Judges said the winning home is well designed for the site, creating a striking entry from the street.

“The exterior flows inside, drawing you in and exposing you to the stylish interior. This then flows out to the private outdoor living area,” they said.

“The use of multiple cladding in the design has created many bespoke details that required accurate and precise finishing. The builder has executed the detailing perfectly, with every aspect of the build showing a high level of workmanship and passion for the project.

“It was a pleasure to judge this outstanding home.”

The results of the regional competition were revealed at a gala dinner on 14 July at the Caroline Bay Hall. The winning builds were celebrated by Mid and South Canterbury Registered Master Builders Association members and colleagues from the local construction industry.  

There were nine Gold Award winners from Mid and South Canterbury 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 25 November at SKYCITY in Auckland. 

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

About the Registered Master Builders 2017 House of the Year
The competition is divided into two parts – the first is at a regional level, the second at a national level. Gold, Silver and Bronze Award winners are determined using a points-based system. These award-winners are announced at 10 regional events held throughout New Zealand during July and August.

The top local Gold Award winners become Gold Reserve National Finalists. The national finalists are then re-judged by a panel of judges who determine the overall national winners, which are announced at the National event in Auckland on 25 November.
