Stamping a creative mark: Jennian Homes Wanaka


With almost 25 years in the construction industry, well-respected Wanaka local Nathan Simon brings a wealth of expertise to his new role as both Managing Director and Project Manager of Jennian Homes Wanaka.

 

 

While running his own business since 2006, Nathan built two homes for the Jennian Homes Southland franchise owners, who then offered him the opportunity to franchise for the Wanaka area, which hadn’t yet had a locally owned and operated Jennian presence.

Nathan took over Jennian Homes Wanaka mid-year and, while aligning with the company’s values and standards of excellence, he is stamping his own creative mark. Previously focusing on top-end bespoke architectural new builds, he strives to incorporate architectural flair into family-living. “I’m currently working on the Wanaka Alpine series, which is a range of three designs, specifically created to suit the smaller Wanaka sites, which are typically 400-500sqm sections. It’s about finding the right design to suit the section, while still including everything on the homeowner’s wish list and keeping within their budget.”

 

With an extensive choice of Jennian ‘Proven Plans’ and ‘Ready Range’ to choose from, or the option for a design and build from scratch to fit the section, Nathan works closely with clients throughout the entire process. As both the Managing Director and Project Manager, the depth of experience and knowledge he gained while running his own business has proven invaluable. With the assistance of home consultant Abi Casey, Nathan takes the time to find out his client’s needs and wants, planning every step of the journey with them. “Clients like the fact they are dealing with the owner/operator right from the very first consultation to the home’s completion, as it provides more of a personal touch and there’s also that next level of trust and peace of mind for them.”

 

Operating since 1982, Jennian Homes provides a 10-year Master Build Guarantee with all homes. It is also consistently New Zealand’s most awarded building company, throughout the Registered Master Builders House of the Year Awards. Jennian Homes guarantees the completion of your new home and has never failed to complete a home over the 37 years since it’s been running.

Jennian Homes has built its reputation on design, quality and continued customer satisfaction, ensuring the best possible plan designed for the client’s site and budget, while reflecting their personal needs and style. The company’s long-term partnerships with leading suppliers, brands and trades ensure every new home will exceed the homeowner’s expectations and give them many years of enjoyment and satisfaction.

Meanwhile, Takahe Construction Ltd won the title of Registered Master Builders 2018 Renovation of the Year, for its superb renovation of a Merivale home. The company also took out the national category win for the Renovation over $1 million Award and the Outdoor Living Award.

 


HOUSE OF THE YEAR
Judges were impressed with MBL’s clever and balanced design, with this home showing a considered approach in every respect. “The large home sits boldly on a rural site, but peacefully in its landscaped environment. The impeccable crafting and attention to detail demonstrated by the builders and subcontractors is truly exceptional.

“The collaboration between client, architect and builder has made this a home that perfectly suits the needs of the growing family. It is a deserving winner of this award.”

 

Making the Cut!

 

CHRISTCHURCH HAS BEEN THE PROUD RECIPIENT OF BOTH SUPREME AWARDS, FOR A REDWOOD HOME AND MERIVALE RENOVATION.

 


RENOVATION OF THE YEAR
Judges remarked on the amazing quality of the Takahe Construction Ltd’s renovation of the house, which was extensively damaged in the Christchurch quakes. “Originally built in the 1990s, the client chose to engage the original architect to complete a full re-design, whilst retaining the elegance of the original home. A collaborative approach between client, architect, engineer and builder made this project a success. The quality demonstrated in both the rebuild work and the overall renovation is a credit to the team involved.

 

Making the Cut!

“This is truly a spectacular home, which the builder should be extremely proud of.” Registered Master Builders Chief Executive David Kelly says, House of the Year epitomises building excellence and showcases Master Builders as the custodians of quality and innovation across all types of homes and price brackets.

 

Making the Cut!

 

“Residential building continues to fuel the construction boom, and while these homes need to be built quickly and cost effectively, it must not be at the expense of quality. House of the Year sets the standard of what is possible, both in quality and innovation.“The craftmanship demonstrated within all of our finalists shows that our members are building quality homes for all New Zealanders. From the luxury homes, to the cost-effective builds, to apartments, these homes are some of the finest in the country.”
