FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Congratulations to the 2017 VIBE Award Winners!
Vancouver Island (April 4, 2017) – The 2017 VIBE Awards (Vancouver Island Building Excellence) were held on Saturday, April 1st at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre in Nanaimo. The VIBE Awards, produced by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association – Vancouver Island (CHBA-VI), showcase the best in residential construction, design and renovation on Vancouver Island and are recognized as Vancouver Island’s premier residential housing awards program.
The VIBE Awards Gala was MC’d by CTV’s Jessica Lepp with entertainment by Easy Street. This special event celebrated all of the finalists and the high level of excellence that the VIBE Awards honour. Winners were live tweeted and you can follow the conversation at #VIBEawardsVI.
An awards program is also valuable for consumers. Award winning companies and finalists play an important role in helping consumers to differentiate between professionals and non-professionals. Companies who have entered a professional awards program are communicating clearly that they are a professional, committed to their business and proud to be part of the industry and the Association. Consumers can be confident in hiring a VIBE award winner or finalist company.
An esteemed panel of industry professionals and longtime CHBA members from outside Vancouver Island judged the entries. The judges’ scores were tabulated by the accounting firm of MNP.
“The VIBE Awards celebrate residential construction professionals on Vancouver Island.” said Kelsey Botting, CHBA-VI Executive Officer. “Thank you to all of the finalists and partners for your support! Congratulations to all of the winners!”
The night’s big winners were TS Williams Construction and project partner KB Design and MAC Renovations each taking home four VIBE Awards. Pheasant Hill Homes took home five VIBE Awards including both Home Builder of the Year and Renovator of the Year.
