Congratulations to Reid’s Heritage Homes on being named Ontario’s Builder of the Year for 2013!
For over a year now, it has been my priviledge to represent Reid’s Heritage Homes in the sale of their inventory homes in the Georgian Meadows subdivision in Collingwood. I always felt good about selling homes in the neighbourhood with their ENERGY STAR® certified homes and quality appointments. The neighbourhood developed beautifully over the years with wide streets, parks and a nice mix of homes and styles.
They were also named as one of Canada’s Best Employers by PROFIT magazine and Queen’s University. and previously, they were named Participant of the Year by Energy Star (the first home builder ever so recognized in Canada).
Here is the media release issued by the Ontario Home Builder’s Association:
Reid’s Heritage Homes, captured top honours when it was named 2013 Ontario Home Builder of the Year by the Ontario Home Builders’ Association (OHBA). The Southwestern Ontario-based builder excels in its commitment to energy efficient, high-quality craftsmanship and creative approaches to sales and marketing. With over 30 years of experience in the home building industry, the firm has built their reputation on their promise to create homes, neighbourhoods and communities that are safe, inviting and committed to a greener future. Based on this philosophy, Reid’s was the first company in Canada to build the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) ‘platinum-level’ home and has continued to strive towards more efficient homes by participating in the ecoEnergy Innovation Initiative to build net-zero homes that are affordable and sustainable. It is because of projects like these that the firm has been the proud recipient of several awards recognizing their commitment to the environment and the community, including: the 2013 Water Conservation and Efficiency Award and the 2013 Cambridge Workforce Training and Development Award. The much sought-after award is presented to the company that demonstrates the highest levels of performance, creativity and ingenuity based on judging criteria in the areas of sales and marketing excellence, floor plan design, community service, support of the industry and its ability to adapt to changing needs. Ontario Home Builder of the Year is among 34 categories in the OHBA Awards of Distinction program which honours innovation and excellence in the areas of design and sales and marketing.
