KNX NZ is delighted to announce the winners of the National Awards which were presented at the KNZ NZ Conference on 22 May 2019, at the Crown Plaza, Christchurch.
The awards were judged over three categories: Residential, Commercial and Best Design. The finalists were announced after the KNX board were shown detailed plans and details of each project. Supported by photos and in some cases customer glowing testimonials, each category was highly contested with quality KNX projects from all over New Zealand.
The awards were presented by Romesh Anandaraja, General Manager of Ivory Egg, who commented that without sounding like cliche the overall quality of entries was better than ever. There were six finalists for the residential category and five for both the Commercial and Design. Details of all the finalists and their projects can be found here.
