The competition has given New Zealanders a taste of top quality homes for the past two decades, and this year will be no exception.
Long time competition judge Graham Coe says the judges will be looking for homes with exceptional quality and workmanship.
“Each project will be judged on a number of criteria, including workmanship, design, functionality and style.
“The judges will be looking for homes that fit well in their environment, use suitable materials and have a high level of workmanship across all areas of the home,” Mr Coe says.
“This competition always brings out the best of New Zealand builds, and I am looking forward to seeing what Registered Master Builders has to show us this year.”
John Beveridge, chief executive of principal sponsor PlaceMakers, is proud to sponsor the competition in its 21st year.
“It is fitting that the competition is in its 21st year as, typically, 21 is the time you come of age and look towards your future — this is certainly true for the House of the Year, which has a bright future ahead,” Mr Beveridge says.
“Home owners are also becoming increasingly aware of the value a House of the Year award holds, and it presents a great marketing opportunity for builders to showcase their skills and talent to potential clients.”
Judging will conclude in early August, with regional events commencing from July.
The Awards are made possible through the support of principal sponsor PlaceMakers, and supporting sponsors James Hardie, Gib Living Solutions®, Pink Batts® Ultra® (Tasman Insulation), Nulook, and the Department of Building and Housing.
