Collaboration is the enduring theme of Constructive.

House of the Year

The Registered Master Builders House of the Year awards celebrate the very best in residential building from new homes and show homes to renovations and builder’s own homes. 
The competition has been running for more than 25 years, recognising the craftsmanship of New Zealand’s best builders from across the sector, including affordable homes and through to luxury buildings. 

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, and the Regional Supreme Winners for both new builds and renovations, are judged by a team of experts using a points-based system. These award-winners are announced at 10 regional events held throughout New Zealand during July and August. All of the houses are featured on the House of the Year website and in Regional magazines delivered direct to homes throughout the regions.

The top 100 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 category winners and the National Supreme Winners, which are announced at the National event in Auckland on Saturday 25 November 2017. The winning homes are showcased in the National House of the Year magazine that is available from all good magazine retailers in early December.

  • Celebrate the quality of work and craftsmanship required in delivering a superior commercial project while promoting the wider team

Apprentice of The Year

The Registered Master Builders Apprentice of the Year, in association with Carters, aims to recognise excellence among carpentry apprentices and raise awareness of career opportunities in the building and construction industry. It’s a competition that looks to test several aspects of a well-rounded apprentice, not just their skills on the tools.

Apprentices, you can enter whether or not you work for a Registered Master Builder. Employers, we encourage all of you and particularly our Business Members to put their best apprentices forward for this competition, it’s a fantastic experience and the prize pool is fantastic. Employers can read about the benefits here. Prior years’ entrants have said they got the following out of entering:

  • A chance to compare themselves against other apprentices to see how they stack up
  • Recognition of their skills, which is valuable for future employment opportunities
  • The process of preparing the entry form, and for finalists being interviewed and having a site visit was a great learning experience, and a chance to meet industry people and network
  • Built confidence in themselves and their skills.

Entries open each April. In 2017 the national final and awards are November 3rd in Auckland co-located with the Auckland BUILD trade event. For more information on RMB CARTERS Apprentice of the Year please click here.
