The 2014 Canadian Home Builders’ Association-Alberta Awards of Excellence in Housing were handed out this past weekend at the BUILD 2014 conference in Jasper, with the Homes by Avi Group of Companies taking home the Multi-family Builder of the Year Award.
“We work very hard to establish a high level of value and innovation in the products that we build,” says Charron Ungar, president of Avi Urban, the multi-family division of Homes by Avi. “It feels great that our industry has recognized us as a leader in multi-family housing in our province.”
Alice Mateyko, president of Homes by Avi’s single family division in Alberta, echoes Ungar’s sentiment. “Our competitors set the bar pretty high,” says Mateyko. “Year after year, I’m amazed at the quality of work presented by our industry peers, so to be recognized among them is truly an honour.”
Builder of the Year awards are presented for the best overall score in the competition. Points are awarded to the finalists in each category, with additional points given for where, in the top three, each finalist ranks. Avi Urban’s win for Multi-family Apartment Under $325,000 for Sawyer at Silverado, as well as an additional five finalist rankings from all three of the Homes by Avi Group of Companies in both Calgary and Edmonton contributed to the Builder of the Year win.
“This award has highlighted several different multi-family products that we offer,” adds Ungar, “from our semi-detached urban infills and our fee simple Street Towns to our townhomes and apartment condos. We are proud of the recognition and we remain committed to doing even greater things for future homebuyers in Alberta.”
