The national finalists in the Registered Master Builders 2007 House of the Year and RMB Commercial Project Awards have been announced.

 

The programme, sponsored by PlaceMakers, is in its 17th year. Excellence in workmanship by Registered Master Builders throughout the country has resulted in 100 Gold Reserve finalists representing the very best of the 675 entrants in 20 regional competitions held throughout the country during June, July and August.

 

They will vie for New Zealand’s top two building honours — the 2007 House of the Year (winner of the PlaceMakers Supreme Award), and the RMB Commercial Project of the Year.

 

These national titles, together with category winners and Lifestyle Awards, will be announced at a black-tie gala dinner at Auckland’s SkyCity Convention Centre on October 27.

 

The 100 finalists’ properties will be rejudged during September and October to determine the winners in each category and the overall winners.

 

The House of the Year and RMB Commercial Project Awards are made possible through the support of principal sponsor PlaceMakers and supporting sponsors James Hardie, GIB Living Solutions, Pink Batts Ultra (Tasman Insulation), Mico Bathrooms, Housing New Zealand Corporation, Nulook, Future-Proof Building, SeismicMA and QBE Insurance.
