Authentech Homes leads way with five CHBA-CO Okanagan Housing Awards

Authentech cream of crop

Authentech Homes was the big winner on Saturday night during the 30th annual Okanagan Housing Awards of Excellence.

The company behind the Wilden Living Lab’s Next Generation Home captured five awards in all during the Canadian Home Builders’ Association-Central Okanagan gala dinner, which was held at Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Okanagan Resort.

“The Okanagan is a breeding ground for housing excellence,” AuthenTech Homes president Scott Tyerman said in a press release. “Okanagan builders are leaps and bounds ahead of the rest. It is great to have an awards program to showcase these innovations to the rest of Canada.

“I am grateful to the CHBA-CO for the opportunity to have received recognition through the years. I think it is important for the many employees, trades, suppliers, and consultants to be recognized for their excellence. There is no better feeling for myself, or these hard-working people, than recognition from your peers.”

AuthenTech Homes was named the large volume builder of the year, and it also won for excellence in creating a feature/innovation in a home, environmental initiative, public or private partnership, and custom certified home.

Isabey Interiors captured four honours, while Timberhaven Homes, Okanagan Infill and Westwood Fine Cabinetry all won three awards. Ray Wynsouw was honoured with the organization’s lifetime achievement award.

“The Okanagan Housing Awards of Excellence showcase the exceptional talent and dedication of our building, renovation and design community in creating innovative and sustainable housing solutions for our region,” CHBA-CO president Darren Witt said. “I am proud to recognize the outstanding achievements of our members and the positive impact they have on the Okanagan's economy, environment and quality of life.”
