BILD Awards Celebrate Excellence
Each Year, Developers Vie for Prestigious Honours That Laud Innovation in The Design, Construction, Sales and Marketing of New Homes
The deadline for entries for this year’s awards was March 23, and winners will be announced at the BILD Awards gala event on June 22.
The BILD Awards have been around since 1980 and recognize excellence and innovation in the design, construction, sales and marketing of new homes in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). More than 50 judges from across North America and Europe, each of whom has a minimum 15 years of experience in the industry and have senior roles within their firms, evaluate all the nominations. Last year, BILD introduced a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award for the first time, recognizing a member company that promotes equity and inclusion within its operation.
“For over 40 years, the BILD Awards has not only celebrated marketing excellence, they have also celebrated the innovation our builder/developer members push for in architectural design, housing type and in the planning of complete communities across the GTA,” says Dave Wilkes, BILD’s president and chief executive officer. “In particular, Project of the Year (high-rise and low-rise) and Best New Community Planned/Under Development showcase how BILD members design communities where new homeowners will live, work and play. These projects demonstrate how the industry is providing a wide range of quality housing options for home buyers in GTA.”
David Wilkes is president and chief executive officer of the BILD Awards, which for more than 40 years has rewarded developers for outstanding work. The winners of this year’s BILD Awards will be announced on June 22.COURTESY OF AMARA STUDIOS.
