Vernon home builders are being recognized as some of the best in the Okanagan.

The Canadian Home Builder’s Association of the Central Okanagan (CHBA-CO) announced the winners of the annual Okanagan Housing Awards of Excellence at its awards gala on Saturday night, Jan. 25..

Held at the Delta Grand Okanagan Hotel, the Okanagan Housing Awards of Excellence honours exceptional work done by home builders, designers and renovators in the Central Okanagan.

“This year the projects were nothing short of outstanding as the judges said they were absolutely blown away. This is not standard across Canada, CHBA-CO is truly leading the way in housing innovation,” said Cassidy deVeer, president, CHBA-CO. “I always feel honored to represent this amazing group. The talent level of our members is what makes our association great.”

Multiple winners were the big story this year as Kelowna’s Ian Paine Construction and Design led the pack with six awards, while Vernon’s Sunterra Custom Homes was a five time winner.
