Tarion has announced the finalists for the inaugural Ernest Assaly Award to recognize Ontario new home builders who are leaders in quality home building, innovation and community service.
The finalists are: Granite Homes; Lockwood Brothers Construction; and Pinnacle Quality Homes.
Each year, Tarion conducts a survey for new home owners to rate their builder’s performance and customer service, and those who come out on top are recipients of the Homeowners’ Choice Awards. But some builders in the province take excellent to exceptional.
“This new award recognizes a builder’s longstanding commitment to building quality, innovation and involvement in their community,” says Tarion president and CEO Howard Bogach. “Ontario has more than 5,000 registered builders, but only 38 met the challenging eligibility criteria and were invited to make a full nomination submission to Tarion.”
The award is named after Mr. Ernest Assaly, Tarion’s first Board Chair (1976 to 1988). He was a passionate voice for the builder’s warranty program, a highly respected award-winning builder and leader in Ontario’s residential construction industry.
Finalists for the inaugural award were selected by Tarion’s Board of Directors and will be honoured at the Homeowners’ Choice Awards luncheon in Woodbridge on April 19, where the recipient will also be announced.
