The renovation of this traditional home in Mount Victoria saw Planit Construction take out six awards in the Wellington Wairarapa Registered Master Builders awards, including Supreme Renovation of the Year.

The best of the new and the old are celebrated in the Wellington Wairarapa Registered Master Builders Awards this year – the builders of a new house on the Kapiti Coast and a large renovation project in Mount Victoria took out the Supreme Awards.

Planit Construction's work on the historic Mount Victoria house saw the firm win a massive six awards for the project, starting with the Wellington Wairarapa Registered Master Builders 2017 Supreme Renovation of the Year Award. The team also collected a Gold Award and Category win in the Renovation over $1 million category, the Craftsmanship Award, the Plumbing World Bathroom Excellence Award and the Heart of the Home Kitchen Award.

And it's the kitchen that truly delights in this house renovation, which was designed by Clare Bush Architects. The judges described the renovation as "simply stunning", with the kitchen being a "delightful addition" to the house.

The house was extensively remodelled, both inside and out.
