Since its inception 26 years ago, the Tommie has been recognized as the symbol of this excellence in the Okanagan Valley, attracting interest and recognition from well outside the local region.

“The success of Tommie Awards 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 the Canadian Home Builders Association, that works tirelessly to promote and showcase world-class projects and communities,” Santos says.

Open to CHBA members and evaluated by out-of-province experts in the field, Tommie Award submissions are evaluated on various criteria, such as functionality of layout, unique design elements, choice of materials, construction details/techniques to achieve industry best practices.
