Edmonton Builders built on their strengths with a strong performance at the BILD Alberta Awards last week.

City Homes Master Builder, the event’s biggest winner with five wins including a coveted pinnacle (Large Volume Builder), led the way as local builders won three of the top five categories. Pinnacle Awards are given to the nominees with the highest total number of points.

Both Averton and Vicky’s Homes received top honors as the Building Industry and Land Development Alberta Association, the organization that represents the land development, housing and renovation industries in Alberta, presented more than 30 awards at the virtual event in late September .

“We are very happy about the recognition and thank our employees, customers, trades and suppliers as well as our industry.”

City Homes also received four other awards, all in the single family home segment.

“Our team develops the vision for each home so that each home is unique and different from the others,” added Shipton. “Each room is carefully thought out and designed with the greatest possible detail and functionality. When someone sees a photo of our houses or walks into one of our houses, I want them to say, ‘Wow, this is different, cool, unique.’ ”

Averton, which was awarded the Medium Volume Builder Pinnacle, also won one of the multi-family terraced house categories.

“The awards are so special to the entire team as they recognize a multi-year journey of hard work and collaboration to launch our Midtown project (in St. Albert) and an innovative and bold community vision and incredible collection of homes,” said Paul Lanni, President of Averton. “The Pinnacle Award is just a whole other level as it goes beyond the houses. It also takes into account our community involvement, safety, customer service, and industry leadership, so this is a reflection of our entire team and the journey we’ve taken. “
