Take Your Multi Unit Project to the Next Level
Enter House of the Year 2021

Multi units are now part of New Zealand’s residential landscape and we want to recognise and celebrate the quality multi unit homes that our members are building more and more of everyday.  

House of the Year has a category just for multi units (apartments/duplexes/terrace housing), so if you have completed a great multi unit build there is still plenty of time to enter it into House of the Year for 2021 and make a great project, an award winning project. 

To make it even easier, multi unit entries have flexibility on when judging will take place.  We will allocate four days each month between April – June that can be selected for judging so you can suit what works best for you and your client.

Entries close on 26 February 2021.

These awards are a fantastic opportunity for you and your team to celebrate the hard work, skill and effort that has gone into creating these beautiful properties. 

Recognised and valued by builders and consumers alike, the House of the Year awards programme differentiates you  and provides you with a mark of quality to help grow and promote your business.

By entering you are showing that you have what it takes to be an award-winning multi-unit builder.  

Insider Tips from a House of the Year Judge

Hear all the do’s and don’ts of entering from experienced judge Faye Pearson-Green. Faye is an experienced architectural designer and a 6-time House of the Year judge and has seen it all when it comes to entries.

With insights on when you should be thinking about entering a build (hint: it's not when the build is almost finished), why the construction of the building is the most important aspect of the competition (not the colours the owner has chosen), through to how you can leverage the awards to help you grow your marketing presence, this video is well worth a watch.

You can watch the full video on Elevate, or you can listen to the podcast here.
