Renovation of the Year

Renovation of the Year
December 18, 2013

Congratulations to Wilson Building (Wgtn) Limited, whose four bedroom renovation in Mt Victoria, Wellington won the Renovation of the Year award and the Future-Proof Building Renovation Award over $500,000.

HOY-2353Judges said this incredibly successful renovation was made even more of a success given the level of difficulty and challenges which arose during the build.

“A large amount of structural work was required, including undermining, underpinning and tunnelling under the building – further complicated by the proximity of the neighbouring properties.

“Completed while sitting on temporary piles seven metres off the ground, the home is finished with recycled timber floors throughout and a panelled ceiling through the kitchen and living area. Where possible original features have been restored and retained, as well as adding custom-made window sills, colonial skirting and architraves.

“The result is a beautiful home which retains all of its turn of the century character, whilst cleverly incorporating modern technology conducive to this century’s lifestyles.
