Building team wins gold

Over 600 members from the Okanagan building industry came together to celebrate their successes. 

The industry's finest gathered for the annual Tommie Awards Gala, which was hosted at the Delta Grand Hotel in Kelowna on Saturday evening. 

It was an especially big night for Vernon-based company Bercum Builders They brought home four of the six gold awards they were nominated for, including 'Home of the Year,' which means the house qualifies for a provincial Georgie award in March.

Darren Witt, owner of Bercum Builders, credited his relationships with his team members as making the award possible.

"It’s important to have a top-notch team that is committed to excellence. We are privileged to work with the very best in the business," Witt said.

The property that won the award is a waterfront home that has been described as "jaw-dropping," featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and concrete and steel construction.

It also won the Bercum team victories in the Excellence in Outdoor Living Spaces and Excellence in Single Family Detached Home over $5 million categories. 

“It was an honour to have been nominated. And we are elated to have won. It feels great to be recognized," Witt said. "At the end of the day,  it’s important to bring recognition to the construction industry."
