18 Nov 2015

A new home in Mt Maunganui and a renovation in Auckland (above) that have been recognised as New Zealand’s top homes both use Resene paints. The houses won the Supreme Awards at the 25th Registered Master Builders 2015 House of the Year Awards.

Mt Maunganui firm Shaw Builders won the coveted title of Registered Master Builders 2015 House of the Year with their striking beachside mansion, pictured below, along with the sought-after Craftsmanship Award and the Westpac New Home over $2 million category. 

The company has a track-record in the national competition, having won awards for the past seven years.

Glover Homes were awarded the Supreme Award for the Registered Master Builders 2015 Renovation of the Year, with their major renovation of a home in Albany (pictured at top). The builder also received the SafetyMate Renovation Award over $500,000.

All Supreme, Lifestyle and Category winners were selected from 100 Gold Reserve National Finalists, which were all involved in the 11 regional competitions held throughout New Zealand during July and August.

The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, Master Build Services, James Hardie, GIB, Nulook, SafetyMate, Carters, ITM, Plumbing World, Resene, Westpac and Mitre 10.
