Edmonton dominates housing awards

CHBA honours province’s top builders, renovators, developers.

Edmonton builders took home the lion’s share of trophies at the 2013 Awards of Excellence in Housing on Friday, winning 14 of the 22 prizes.

The awards were handed out during the BUILD 2013 Conference in Jasper, held by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association — Alberta. The annual event brings together builders, renovators and developers from across the province.

This year, for the first time, the association awarded Builder of the Year accolades in three categories: large volume, small volume and multi-family. Homes by Avi took the Ralph Scurfield Builder of the Year Award in the large-volume category; White Eagle Homes of Edmonton received the nod for small volume; and Builder of the Year in the multi-family category was Qualico Group of Companies.

Calgary’s builders won six awards, and one builder in each of Red Deer and Lethbridge was also honoured. Companies that won multiple awards include Homes by Avi (four), White Eagle Homes (three) and Landmark and Qualico (two each).

The CHBA received a record 412 entries this year from across Alberta, underscoring the strength and competitiveness of the industry. According to the association, housing starts in the province were up 10 per cent in the first half of 2013, and new housing activity is expected to remain relatively high throughout 2014.
