North Okanagan contractors have walked away with the hardware.

A sold out crowd of 600 people gathered for the 25th anniversary of the Tommie Awards, which celebrate the achievements of the housing industry for the past year.

“The Tommies in many ways set the trends we see in homes that people want for their own homes,” said Sherri Paiement, executive officer of the Canadian Home Builders Association of the Central Okanagan.

“Renovations showcase what you can really do to create beautiful spaces with your existing home.”

Coldstream’s Keith Dahlen Construction won the excellence in single-family detached home $350,000 to $500,000 category, while it also captured top prize for excellence in a single-family detached home from $750,000 to $1 million.

Vernon’s Sunterra Custom Homes placed first in the excellence in kitchen renovations category $65,000 and under.

Predator Ridge’s Wesbild Homes and Rykon won the category for excellence in a single-family detached home from $1 to $1.5 million.

From Lake Country, Gibson Framing led the way in the excellence in show home category for $500,000 and under.

Also from Lake Country, NovaRae Interiors received gold for excellent in residential renovations for $100,000 to $250,000.

And Vernon’s Adhi Develpoments won for excellence in creating a low-rise, multi-family development.

Other than the winners, the highlight of the gala was a video retrospective of the Okanagan, its growth over 25 years and the people who shaped the communities.

“The video showcased where we’ve come from and where we are today from industry icons to the current year, where we’ve had a record number of building starts.” said Paiement.

“The success of Tommies could not be achieved without a strong and vibrant industry to support it. It’s success is a testament to the hard work and efforts of CHBA Central Okanagan, its members, its project partners and sponsors that have made the Tommie Awards what it is.”
