PHOTOS: Langley homebuilders nominated for 2020 HAVAN Awards

Categories range from extensive kitchen renovation projects to ‘Best Townhome’ designs

Though COVID-19 may have many stuck inside their own homes to self isolate, that doesn’t mean folks can’t take a peek inside other homes around Langley – namely the ones up for HAVAN Awards.

Homebuilders Association Vancouver (HAVAN) recently revamped the HAVAN Ovation Awards, evolving the honour into the HAVAN Awards for Housing Excellence last month.

The HAVAN Awards for Housing Excellence puts a spotlight on the accomplishments of the home-building industry each year.

Capturing the best new-home construction, renovation and design projects in Metro Vancouver, the awards showcase custom-built homes, kitchen and bathroom renovations, single and multi-family developments, and the latest in high-performance building technology and innovative housing choices.

Ron Rapp, HAVAN CEO, said Metro Vancouver is on the world’s real estate stage – an achievement worth celebrating.

“Our members continue to build beyond code, finding solutions to meet homeowner demands and housing challenges we face in our region. It’s only natural we elevated the brand, to keep pace with our builders, and to better connect consumers to the industry’s best,” he explained.
