Housing awards gala to be held

On May 4th homebuilders in Central Alberta will receive recognition for their efforts at the 2013 Awards of Excellence in Housing and President Gala.

The event is hosted by the Canadian Homebuilder’s Association – Central Alberta.

The awards aim to give acknowledgment to the hard work, dedication, and success of the Association’s members, officials say.

“The point of the awards is to give recognition for all of the homebuilders and tradesmen involved,” said Pam Cameron, committee chair.

“They all put so much time into their work they deserve the recognition.”

The Gala will be held at the Sheraton Hotel. The Canadian Home Builders’ Association – Central Alberta Region has announced the 2013 finalists on their web site, however the winners will be announced the eve of the event. “Last year Mason Martin homes took the home of the year,” said Cameron.

“As a customer, that would say a lot to me to buy a home from on of the winners, especially home of the year.”

Members of the CHBA consist of homebuilders, renovators, developers, trade constructors, lenders, and manufacturers. Over 500 guests are expected to attend this event celebrating the region’s best in homebuilding and community development.

“The builders are judged anonymously on a variety of criterion after they submit both photos and a write up for each home,” said Cameron. “Fifty per cent of the mark comes from the pictures and write up, 25 per cent from a customer survey that is sent out and 25 per cent from what the trades people they had working for them had to say about their work.

“It’s what the customers and the trades say that really matters in the grade.”

Each company can submit up to two homes per category, and if they win in one of the varying price ranges, they may then have the chance to be nominated for Builder of the Year.
