Stonewood Marlborough wins both Residential and Commercial Awards

It’s a very prestigious thing for a building company to receive an award in either the Residential or Commercial Masterbuilders Awards, both held annually in New Zealand. Stonewood Homes Marlborough have gone one step further and taken out awards in both the Masterbuilders House of the Year and the Masterbuilders Commercial Building Awards in less than a year!

Following on their success last year when they took out both Gold and Category Awards in the Masterbuilders House of the Year for their beautiful showhome in Blenheim, they have now also been recognised with a bronze medal in the tourism and leisure category for Manakau Lodge, a luxury bed and breakfast in Kaikoura.

Director David Campbell said he was ecstatic to receive the commercial award.  “This is unique, particular because we don’t usually build commercials properties,” he said.  Judging criteria included design, contract management, construction and delivery.

Situated on a five-acre property in beautiful mountain surroundings, Manakau Lodge is a luxury rural retreat just ten minutes from Kaikoura which aims to offer the discerning traveller the finest in boutique bed and breakfast lodge accommodation, and warm, friendly country hospitality.
