NZ industry names its top pool builders

Our counterparts across the ditch are producing some outstanding work. The New Zealand Master Pool Builders (NZMPB) 2016–2017 Photographic Competition winners have been announced and, having been invited to join the judging panel, I can attest to the quality of the entries. In many cases, it was very difficult to decide on a winner as there was so much fantastic work showcased.

Auckland Inground Pools won silver in the Refurbishment category with this pool.

NZMPB CEO Larry Ogden said he was so impressed by the high standard of entries that he decided to institute a special President’s Highly Commended award.

Carlos Morgan of Morgan Pools dominated the competition, taking home three gold and three silver awards. Paul Fuller of Acacia Pools & Landscaping also did well, receiving one gold, one silver and two bronze awards.

Morgan Pools’ winning entry in the Residential Pools more than $100K category.
