Vancouver, BC – Concert is pleased to announce that it has received six Georgie Awards® from the BC Chapter of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association marking the company’s most successful year to date.
Concert was proud to receive two of the industry’s most coveted Georgie Awards® – the Customer Choice Georgie Award® powered by AVID™ and the Georgie for Large Volume Multi-Family Home Builder of the Year. This marks the fourth consecutive year Concert has been recognized with a Customer Choice Georgie Award® – awarded based on third party surveys administered to each new homebuyer – and the fifth time since 2000 that the company has been recognized as Home Builder of the Year.
“We are extremely proud to have been repeatedly recognized as the province’s top home builder,” said David Podmore, Concert’s Chairman & CEO. “In addition, the consistent recognition received directly from our homeowners fuels our ongoing commitment to delivering top quality homes backed by superior customer service.”
Concert also took home four Georgies for the seniors community Tapestry at Wesbrook Village UBC including Best Multi-Family Landscape Design, Best Brochure, Best Ad Campaign and the Sustainable and Innovative Community Award.
“Our win in the Sustainable and Innovative Community award category for Tapestry at Wesbrook Village UBC speaks to our vision for this community,” said Brian McCauley, Concert’s President & COO. “A unique, campus-based community offering exceptional rental and condominium homes to discerning seniors, Tapestry was built to adhere to gold sustainability standards, further setting this development apart from its peers.”
Judged by a panel of industry professionals, the Georgie Awards® were created in 1992 by the BC Chapter of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association to recognize the best in British Columbia’s housing industry. As part of the awards, through AVID™ Ratings consumers are given the ability to rate builders and renovators on all aspects of the home buying process, from construction and product satisfaction, to warranty service experience to referral intentions. CHBA-BC, in partnership with AVID™ Ratings, applies the survey results in the Customer Choice Georgie Awards® categories and as part of the total criteria for the Builder of the Year Category.
The winners were announced at the 2011 Georgie Awards® Gala on February 25, 2012 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West.
