Pushing The Boundaries

Faulkner Construction

Faulkner Construction set a new standard of achievement at the 2021 Registered Master Builders Auckland House of the Year Awards, with three Gold medals. 

The team of 25 carpenters was awarded Gold medals across three separate categories including New Home over $2 million, New Home $1 million – $1.5 million, and Renovation over $1 million. 

In the first category, foreman Adriaan Kant put his team’s success down to a relentless expectation for quality and a deep passion for building. 


Carpenters are immediately introduced to a high standard of quality and craftsmanship, and this is installed from the first interview with owner Ross Faulkner.

Faulkner’s passion for building is reflected by the team’s participation in the awards, which they participate in most years with team members placing first (2010), second (2017, 2020, 2021), and third (2012, 2020) in the Auckland competition.

Foreman Will Moore also won gold for the New Home $1 million – $1.5 million, and said he had been encouraged by the Faulkner team to keep learning and developing himself as a builder throughout his seven-year journey, which started with the company as an apprentice.



The eldest of three Faulkner sons involved in the business, Phil, received the third gold medal for the Renovation over $1 million.

He’s watched his father build this culture of ‘Pride and Excellence’ over 40 years and a mantra that ‘quality is non-negotiable’.
