Winning builders use Resene paint

30 Nov 2016

Both of the supreme winners of this year's Registered Master Builders 2016 House of the Year Awards used Resene paints. A new build in Auckland and a renovation in Hamilton have been recognised as New Zealand’s best homes, winning Supreme Awards at a gala event at the weekend.

Auckland’s Richard Davidson Builders Limited won four national awards with their Campbells Bay home, including the coveted title of Registered Master Builders 2016 Supreme House of the Year, along with the National category win for the New Home over $2 million Award, the Plumbing World Bathroom Excellence Award, and the Craftsmanship Award. The house had previously won a Resene Total Colour Award for a scheme that includes a range of soft but stormy blues including Resene Powder Blue (shown), Resene Hermitage, Resene Lynch, Resene Ivanhoe and Resene Tiara. 

Hamilton’s John S Macdonald Builders Limited was awarded the Registered Master Builders 2016 Supreme Renovation of the Year for their Tamahere renovation, along with the National category win for the Renovation Award over $500,000.

Registered Master Builders Chief Executive David Kelly said the number of top-quality homes entered in the competition this year has been outstanding, reflecting the ongoing commitment to quality from across the sector.

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