Built Green Canada Maverick Award winners announced

Built Green Canada Maverick Award winners announced

VANCOUVER – Built Green Canada has announced the winners of its inaugural Maverick Awards.

Entries came from British Columbia through to Ontario and three winners were recognized in the ambassadorship, innovation and transformational categories.

“Every day, we work alongside builders, renovators, restorers, and developers and see remarkable leadership in sustainable building, in what is still a burgeoning sector of the industry. Our three winners embody our mission to progress industry toward more holistic sustainable building practices — these are our trailblazers,” Built Green Canada CEO Jenifer Christenson said in a statement.  

The Ambassador Maverick award goes to Kelly Williams at Sterling Homes Edmonton for “recognizing leadership in advancing sustainable building,” the Built Green Canada release said. Williams was an advocate for company-wide adoption of the BUILT GREEN® third-party certification programs, while co-ordinating trades and suppliers for full activation.

Kanas Corporation won in the Innovation category for their Orion build in Calgary’s Lumino Park for recognizing creativity in advancing sustainable building.

“Orion is the tallest ICF building in Western Canada, and certified BUILT GREEN® Platinum, with a state-of-the-art cogeneration system providing 534 KW of electricity to the development,” the release said.

The Transformational category winner was Vancouver-based Major Homes for recognizing the “significant impact of their sustainability practices.”

“Originally a traditional builder, Major Homes underwent a fundamental evolution, guided by the BUILT GREEN® program, to become a leading energy and sustainability focused builder, and a catalyst to the custom home building sector,” the release said.

The awards were sponsored by BC Housing and the category sponsors were category sponsors Heidelberg Materials,  Travelers Insurance and Excel Homes.
