An extensive renovation in Westmorland has been named this year’s finest Canterbury renovation
NZ Mainco was awarded the Canterbury Registered Master Builders Supreme Award for the 2014 Renovation of the Year, as well as a Gold Award and overall category win for the ITM Renovation Award $250,000 – $500,000.
The winning home impressed judges who say this complete renovation was carried out by a skilled and competent builder who has set the standard for project management on an extremely difficult site.
“Responding to a brief to strengthen the home against weather conditions and natural disasters, the builder excelled in transposing the original build into a robust, modern home.
“With upgrades to the kitchen, living area and bedrooms, this was an extensive renovation. The builder can be proud of creating a home that the owners were absolutely delighted with.”
The results were announced at a gala dinner on Friday, August 1, at the Wigram Airforce Museum. There were 24 Gold Award winners from Canterbury which will now be assessed alongside Gold Award winners from across the country to find the National Gold Reserve finalists in September.
National category winners and the Registered Master Builders Supreme Awards for Renovation of the Year and House of the Year will be announced at a gala dinner in Auckland in November.
