Faulkner Construction wins gold for their Showhome
November 13, 2013

Faulkner Construction has been in the business of building dream homes for more than 30 years and has earned a reputation for being one of the best.

Their most recent showhome was a Gold Award winner in the 2013 Master Builders Home of the Year awards, Showhome Category. A contemporary family home, this showhome has been designed to maximise the elongated space, whilst retaining a sense of privacy and connection to the outdoors.
In this home the 8 Future-Proof Building principles are put into practice with care and consideration, creating a warm home, full of natural light and quality products. To showcase a few:

2634-Distinct Exterior MainEnergy Smart: All windows are double glazed using a Low E glass (low-emissivity). Hot water is supplied via the Rinnai Infinity Gas Hot Water System. Heated floor tiles are on separate timers to reduce unnecessary heating, and prepare you for the cooler months. Open plan kitchen and living is flooded with natural light via floor to ceiling windows.
Quality: Seismically strong Energy-efficient polystyrene lined concrete floors and solid oak stair treads.
Health and Safety: The ceilings are painted with Resene Ceiling Paint water-borne paint which inhibits mould growth and is environmental choice approved.  GIB Ultraline® Lining System adds fire-rated protection.
Life Cycle: Downpipes are run inside the wider than normal walls with a PVC liner as added water-tightness insurance. Showers are fitted with stainless steel trays below the tiles as added protection.
Sound Control: Downpipes have been insulated to reduce water noise and all cavities have been fitted with soft-close cavity sliders. The home is fitted with a fully integrated sound system and utilisation of the GIB Ultraline® Lining System also provides added noise control.
Spatial Design: The kitchen and living areas of the home are connected vertically through twin voids highlighting the spacious character of the home. The garage, guest quarters and services are secured in a black colour-steel box to the south of the site. Curtain racks and the garage door are fitted flush to create flow and reduce space imposition.

A regular Gold Award winner in Auckland, and nationally, in the “House of The Year” competition, Faulkner Construction are continually recognised for their expertise.  Recently teamed up with FPB, Faulkner has proven to us that they know how to build future-proof homes, and build them in style.
