The wrap-up

Before we let the team go on a well-deserved break at Christmas, we sat down with Stroud Homes Auckland South builder Clare Shorrock to talk about the year that had passed.

2021 was a challenging year for builders everywhere with staff shortages and delays in materials, and we were interested to know how the team persevered and what the outlook is for 2022.

We also have some exciting news to share: winning a silver medal for the House of the Year Awards 2021!

This is what she had to say:

1. Describe 2021 in three words

Challenging supply issues.

2. What was the highlight for your franchise in 2021?

Securing a display home location!

We also had our first ever entry in the Master Builders House of the Year Awards 2021 and we won a SILVER medal!

We are so proud of our team, many builders try for years to get an award as the competition is so tough, it was a huge achievement to win an award our first time.

3. What was the biggest hurdle you or your business overcame in 2021?

With the supply issues across the industry, our systems with organisation has seen us being able to build to program without having jobs on hold while waiting for materials.
