The Georgie Awards will be handed out in February in Vancouver.

CHBA BC to honour cream of the crop in the construction industry

The Georgie Awards are recognized as one of the top awards in the residential construction industry.

The Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia has announced the finalists for this year’s Georgie Awards, honouring the best in the residential construction industry.

This will be the 21st annual awards, which reward builders, renovators, marketers and sales representatives. The awards are known across Canada for recognizing excellence and innovation in B.C.

“A Georgie Award is recognized as an industry stamp of quality. Award entries are at a record high, and the calibre of projects is a testament to the talents and efforts of CHBA BC members,” says the CHBA BC.

This year, the CHBA BC received over 500 entries in a total of 45 categories. The categories include awards for single-family, multi-family and custom homes, as well as renovations for various budgets, marketing and outdoor spaces.

Among the nominees are Portrait Homes, Kenorah Construction & Design, Adera Development Corporation and Harald Koehn Construction Ltd.

The awards will be presented by CHBA BC and BC Homes magazine, and are judged by a panel of residential construction industry professionals from outside of the province. Award nominees must be members of the CHBA BC.

Finalists for the Grand Georgie Awards and Customer Choice Georgie Awards will be announced next month.

The Georgie Awards are named after Captain George Vancouver, the first European to enter Burrard Inlet in 1792. Since the awards began in 1992, the categories, criteria, price points and square footage has changed to reflect changing ideas in the construction industry. The most recent change has been to energy-efficiency categories, with the creation of new ones and the addition of certain criteria to older categories.

The winners will be announced at a black-tie awards gala in February in Vancouver. For a full list of finalists, check out www.georgieawards.ca.
