CONSTRUCTION UNDERWAY AT STAFFORD STREET
AWARDS SUCCESS AT WELLINGTON MASTER BUILDERS AWARDS
Another successful night at the Master Builders House of the Year Awards for Planit Construction saw us take home 6 awards. Planit Construction won the Supreme House of the Year award for our Hawkins Hill home.
Planit Construction also won a Gold Award and Category win for the New Home over $2 million award for the house, plus the Plumbing World Bathroom Excellence Award, the Interior Design Award and the Heart of the Home Kitchen Award.
The judges said the house was built on an extremely exposed site and was well designed to maximise the views."It allows for outdoor living areas that give shelter from the, sometimes, extreme windy conditions. Use of natural products anchor this house to its site, (which is) well positioned to make use of all-day sun. This well-detailed and finished home is a true example of the contractor's skill."
2018 HOUSE OF THE YEAR ENTRY
HAWKINS HILL ROAD
A hybrid city-country home, this architecturally designed home frames views over Wellington from the comfort of its secluded hilltop. The structure exists in harmony with the land while offering sheltered and sunny alfresco living spaces. Oiled cedar and zinc cladding ensure enduring good looks in the unforgiving climate. The skillion ceiling delivers a dynamic feeling of space in the main living area. Areas of floor-to-ceiling glass enhance the open connection with nature. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom layout offers parents and children their own wings. These converge in the shared social spaces. Separate living doubles as a guest room with access to an adjacent bathroom. The energy-efficient interiors stay exceptionally cosy thanks to in-slab hydronic underfloor heating and passive solar heating. Exposed concrete floors and block walls retain the sun’s warmth. Alfresco living areas include a sheltered courtyard with outdoor oven, plus wood storage to feed the fire. This is luxurious living at its understated best.
Planit Construction was featured in Build Magazine following our continued success at the Master Builders House of the Year Awards in 2017. The interview with Greg highlights how Planit Construction's attention to detail and commitment to perfecting every step of the process has significantly contributed to Planit's success at the Master Builders awards and our reputation for high quality finishes.
Greg also discusses the importance of apprentices and how Planit takes on a number of new apprentices in order to shape their development and align our employees with Planit Construction's expectations in terms of quality and contribution.

Planit had another successful year at the 2017 House of the Year Awards.
An extensive renovation to a character home in Mount Victoria saw Planit win the Supreme Renovation of the Year Award at the National Master Builders Awards. In addition to that Planit also took home the Local Supreme Renovation Award, Local Category Aware, Gold Award, Local Craftsmanship Award and the Lifestyle Award for both the kitchen and the bathroom at the Wellington regional awards.
A renovation in Cheviot Rd saw a family home updated to feature light-filled, open-plan living is at the heart the home. Stylish and spacious, with views to the north and west, it’s a relaxed space to indulge a passion for cooking and entertaining. The four-bedroom home won a Local Category Award & Gold Award.
In addition to both entries winning multiple awards, Planit was the recipient of the new Sapphire Award. The award is presented to entrants who have achieved 3 regional Supreme Awards across either renovations or new builds.
