Kelowna's Fawdry Homes captures four Okanagan Housing Awards

Fawdry top housing awards

Fawdry Homes was the big winner over the weekend during the 31st annual Okanagan Housing Awards.

The Kelowna company took home four of the 41 honours on Saturday night at Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Okanagan Resort, including the Excellence in Certified Home award for energy efficiency. It also captured three of the six excellence in single-family detached home awards.

The Central Okanagan chapter of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association holds the awards show annually to recognize the region’s best in home building, renovation and interior design.

Six companies captured two awards each, including Isabey Interiors, Align West Homes, Hannah Katey Interior Design, Norelco Cabinets, Frame Custom Homes and Little Building Solutions.

“The Okanagan Housing Awards spotlight the remarkable talent and dedication within our building, renovation and design industry,” CHBA-CO president Krista Paine said in a press release. “These awards celebrate the innovative and sustainable housing solutions that are shaping our region. This is a moment to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our members, recognizing their positive impact on the Okanagan's economy, environment, and overall quality of life.”

CHBA-CO also honoured Chuck Cullen with its lifetime achievement award. Cullen, who has been building homes in Kelowna since 1990, received a standing ovation from the 550 people in attendance.

“I have been given the opportunity to pass on any knowledge that I have attained in this career to the project co-ordinators I have worked with, the apprentices and the young people who wish to be apprentices in the hopes that this knowledge will perpetuate our industry for years to come,” Cullen said. “I want to dedicate this award, and this moment, to not only those who came before me, but also to those who are coming after me.”

There were a record number of entries this year, and they were judged by a panel of 22 experts from across the country.
