March 9, 2016

OTTAWA (March 9, 2016) - The Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) is pleased to announce the finalists for the inaugural National Awards for Housing Excellence, sponsored by Delta Faucet and Genworth Canada.

CHBA Chief Executive Officer Kevin Lee noted: “These prestigious awards are all about excellence and the very best in new homes, home renovations, community development and marketing across Canada – their name says it all.”

The new CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence are the successors to the Association’s National SAM Awards, established 37 years ago. Thirty-three CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence will be presented at the Association’s 73rd National Conference on May 6, 2016 in Kelowna, British Columbia.

CHBA members responded enthusiastically to new awards program with a record number of nearly 700 entries in 2016.

The 2016 finalists were selected by a national panel of judges who met in Ottawa over two days to review all entries.  “Our judges had a really challenging time with so many exciting and innovative projects to review, but one of our judges summed it up best when he said that looking at the quality of all these entries makes you really proud of the membership in the Association.  I know that the announcement of winners in May will be highly anticipated,” Lee stated.

CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence will be presented for projects of varying sizes in the following categories:
•    New Home Awards (14 in total),
•    Home Renovation Awards (6 in total),
•    Marketing Awards (10 in total)
•    Community Development Award (1 award).

In addition, national awards for Marketing Excellence and Design Excellence are presented to the home builder who has achieved the highest level of success in the overall marketing and new homes categories respectively.

A complete listing by category of all the CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence finalists can be found below.
