Entries open in premier building competition


Entries are open in the Registered Master Builders 2012 House of the Year, in association with PlaceMakers.
2012 marks a significant change for the RMB competition when, for the first time since the inception of the Commercial Project Awards, the House of the Year and the RMB Commercial Project Awards will be run separately.

Registered Master Builders Federation chief executive Warwick Quinn is enthusiastic about starting 2012 with the House of the Year competition.
“These awards programmes continue to set a benchmark for residential and commercial building,” Mr Quinn says.
Splitting the competition will allow us to focus on premium builds in both arenas, and highlight the skill and excellence of our members more effectively in their respective areas of expertise.

“It is an exciting change and I look forward to seeing what Master Builders enter into the residential competition.”
Entries close for House of the Year on February 26, 2012. This year all entries will need to be submitted online at www.masterbuilder.org.nz.
Entries for the new RMB Commercial Project Awards open on August 6, 2012, and close on October 26, 2012.

This means that in 2012 the RMB Commercial Project Awards will not be included in the local House of the Year competition. Instead, they form their own competition, with judging taking place in late 2012 and early 2013, and the results announced at the inaugural RMB Commercial Project Awards Gala Dinner in Auckland in May 2013.
The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, James Hardie, Gib Living Solutions®, Pink® Batts® Ultra® (Tasman Insulation), Nulook, and the Department of Building and Housing.
