Best in Building: The Georgie Awards
The gold Georgie statuette is the Oscar of BC's home construction industry, and it's coveted every bit as much.
The Georgie Awards (named after Captain George Vancouver) celebrate excellence in residential construction and design throughout the province. They're presented by the Canadian Home Builders' Association of British Columbia and are open to all CHBA BC member companies.
For the 2012 awards, 12 expert judges from Ontario, Alberta and California spent three days sifting through 518 entries in 44 categories. They looked at 1,538 slides from residential building projects around BC. They honed those down to 184 finalists representing 80 companies. In late February they named 27 companies the best of the best in BC home construction, renovation and design.
