At an awards gala on Saturday, April 20, the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) revealed the winners of the 2013 Ovation Awards.

“This year’s winners demonstrate the exceptional innovation and expertise of Metro Vancouver’s building industry,” said GVHBA Chief Executive Officer Bob de Wit. “They are the best of the best.”

Now in its fourth year, the GVHBA Ovation Awards recognize the outstanding work of some of Metro Vancouver’s best new-home, renovation and design member companies, from contemporary kitchen renovations to stunning whole-home transformations, and from family-oriented townhouse communities to luxurious custom-built estate homes.

For the first time ever, the Ovation Awards included a People’s Choice Award where the public voted for their favourite new-home or renovated project.
