A Whakamarama home in Tauranga has been recognised as the best new build in this year’s Bay of Plenty Central Plateau Registered Master Builders 2019 House of the Year competition. The “standout winner” took out the Supreme Award, the top award for the region.

Judges said they were impressed by the commitment, skills and passion shown by the building team.

“This amazing home, in its magical setting, definitely deserved the award. From the oversized front door, to the stonework, and other clever details, not a single detail was overlooked. The home shows that the project team had a strong relationship which helped create a remarkable result”

“This home is one that not only the builder, but the whole industry will be proud of. It is a standout winner from a field of high-quality entries.”

The results of the regional competition were revealed at a gala dinner on July 5 at the ASB Bay Park Arena. The winning builds were celebrated by the regions Registered Master Builders and members of the local construction industry.
