GOHBA Building Innovators enter the winners circle at the EnerQuality Awards
It was a very successful night in Toronto for the Ottawa building community, taking home some serious hardware at the EnerQuality Awards on February 25th.
For the second year running, the Minto Group has been named Ontario Green Builder of the Year, with the launch of their first Net Zero Energy model home in the Kanata community of Arcadia. Mattamy Homes won the title of ENERGY STAR® for New Homes Builder of the Year for the third time. The ENERGY STAR® label is an important consumer feature, as these homes are on average 20 percent more energy efficient than a home built to code.
Roy Nandram, GOHBA Board Member and chair of the Building Innovation Committee, won the title R-2000 Builder of the Year with his company, RND Construction. A well-known Housing Design Award winning Green Home Builder, John Corvinelli of Corvinelli Homes was recognized as the ENERGY STAR® for New Homes Champion of the Year for his initiative & strong support of the program. Rounding out the local winners circle was Homesol Building Solutions’ Stephen Magneron, for his work as Evaluator of the Year.
Congratulations to all of these companies and individuals dedicated to building a better Ottawa!
