Customkit Scores Two Silver Medals In National Building Competition.
Franklin company achieves success in prestigious New Zealand Commercial Projects Awards
Customkit Buildings Limited has won two silver medals in a competition considered the benchmark for commercial construction in New Zealand.
Lining up against over 80 companies and projects, success came for two clients in different categories.

Matakana Botanicals, in the retail sector, was up against a number of high profile entries and complexes in both the North and South Islands.

The Judges’ comments in awarding the silver were: “Sustainability is at the core of Matakana Botanicals, a five-acre property on which three Customkit Buildings provide space for an office, factory, café, store, still and honey house. The buildings are 90% energy efficient and the objective was to incorporate sustainability into as many elements as possible—everything from the exterior paint to the toilet.

Meet The Locals, He Tuku Aroha - Wellington Zoo achieved silver in the Tourism and Leisure category. The Judges observed that: “This brand new walk-through precinct is an ode to Aotearoa New Zealand, providing an immersive experience in a range of landscapes from coast to farm and native bush. Visitors can meet little blue penguins and jump in puddles while kunekune pigs wallow in mud next door.”
In the same category The Remarkables Skifields Base Building, employing 55 subcontractors and 130 personnel on site, took out the Gold and Supreme Award.

All about team
According to Customkit Managing Director Michael Anselmi the recognition that comes from competing on the national stage is one thing. Actually achieving success on the company’s first attempt is even more gratifying.
“To be in the company of New Zealand’s major construction companies, and projects, is humbling. You only improve as an organisation when you stretch your limits and strive to achieve. Winning silver for our two entries is a true thrill.”
In the end, says Michael Anselmi, the real motivation is about celebrating the completed construction project and the team relationships that achieve them.
“We’re blessed to have some outstanding building partners and also clients who are truly part of a wider Customkit ‘family’. Each has celebrated in our success and takes pleasure from having their particular buildings achieve honours on the national stage.”
NZ Commercial Project Awards spokesman Greg Pritchard says the purpose of the Awards is to celebrate completed construction projects and the team relationships that achieve them.
“We designed the Awards to promote and encourage excellent building processes and practices within the commercial construction sector. The quality of the work and craftsmanship required in delivering a superior commercial building is just one side aspect.
The rapid growth of entries – up 30% on last year’s number – across all nine categories, he says, showed the increasing strength of the Awards as it heads into its fifth year.
“Over the past several months, judges assessed the projects on construction practices, quality of build, design aesthetics, functionality, overall performance of the building, materials used, durability, energy efficiency, procurement, health and safety, costs and timeframes involved, administration and completion, and overall team relationships, including client satisfaction and how the team worked together.”
