elcome to the 2018 CARE Awards supplement, presented by the Victoria Residential Builders Association and our important industry sponsors. VRBA is the professional voice of housing promoting education, affordability, proven practice and consumer awareness. I hope you enjoy viewing these outstanding projects by VRBA’s builders, renovators, designers, trades and suppliers — Canada’s leaders in sustainable West Coast design and construction. The CARE Awards program is members-only for the protection of consumers. We accept entrants to the CARE Awards only after applicants are reviewed and approved by our Board of Directors, and agree to our Code of Ethics. CARE Awards judges are industry professionals using criteria such as architectural design, quality workmanship, creative use of space and environmental considerations.

If you are considering a new home or renovation, view these outstanding projects and call a member listed in the supplement. Also, I hope you will take advantage of the products and services offered by the valued CARE Awards sponsors listed in this supplement. I want to offer a special thank you to the many voters who participate in our popular People’s Choice Award Contest.

I

hope you enjoy viewing the many award-winning homes in this magazine and online at careawards.ca. The CARE Awards event is as much about the people as it is about the projects. The Lifetime Achievement Award, Bill Wansbrough Memorial Award, Award for Housing Affordability and Building Better Futures Community Award all recognize the importance of giving back to the community. In addition, we provide financial awards to exceptional design and carpentry students and apprentices that one day may have projects of their own in this magazine. There are many experienced and skilled builders, designers, trades and suppliers

contributing to these outstanding projects. The CARE Awards would not be possible without their highly-trained efforts. The Victoria Residential Builders Association is grateful to our members, sponsors, media and the public for supporting the CARE Awards for the past 27 years. Thank you all! If you are planning a new home or renovation, or have any questions about the industry, feel free to contact us at: vrba.ca Best wishes, Casey Edge, Executive Director Victoria Residential Builders Association

The Gold Standard in Sustainable West Coast Design

W

elcome to the 2018 CARE Awards supplement. I have enjoyed managing the CARE Awards events for many years and the projects always raise the bar. This makes the CARE Awards the Gold Standard in sustainable West Coast design and construction. From Project of the Year to People’s Choice Award, it’s a great pleasure working with the members and judges, as well as the public in selecting their favourite projects. I want to offer a big thank you for the support from our Gold, Silver, Bronze and Media Sponsors, including the Times Colonist producing this outstanding supplement.

As well, a special mention to CTV’s Astrid Braunschmidt and CFAX’s Al Ferraby for always making our event entertaining and memorable. Thank you all! Debra Dahlgren Administration & Events Manager Victoria Residential Builders Association

CARE Awards standards protect the public

W

e are asked, at times, why the popular CARE Awards event is open only to VRBA members and not to all in the residential construction industry. Three important reasons are: 1. Diligence on VRBA Applicants VRBA reviews contractors’ references, followed by a Board member conducting interviews and site visits to verify knowledge and experience. 2. Maintain Standards All VRBA members must agree to our Code of Ethics. 3. Consumer Protection We avoid confusion where consumers might mistake a non-member for a VRBA member qualified by the above diligence and standards. We do our best to ensure CARE Awards

winners meet the standards expected by the public and our association. For example, awards judges don’t have an opportunity to inspect a project’s framing or window flashings. We must be confident CARE Awards entrants meet a professional standard beyond the visible finished product. Opening the CARE Awards to non-members would undermine diligence, standards and consumer protection. A word of advice – before hiring an “award-winning” builder, ask about the standards supporting the awards program. Or better yet, simply hire a VRBA member through our popular online Expression of Interest at vrba.ca/hire-a-vrba-member. Visit us at vrba.ca and careawards.ca. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Congratulations to all 2018 CARE Award Winners!

Think Customer Satisfaction. Creating architecturally innovative + environmentally sensitive neighbourhoods for you to call home.

A

chieving success in business is no easy accomplishment, but to continually grow in success for 37 years is remarkable. The Limona Group was established in 1981 by two local businessmen, Michael Baier and John Sercombe, who set upon a mission to offer quality homes at an affordable price. They believed that their industry experience combined with an efficient approach to building and exceptional customer service would be a solid formula for success. Their company has developed many of the larger, single family and multi-family neighbourhoods on Vancouver Island.

The Limona Group had a vision to take raw land, and through astute planning, shape it into community-minded neighbourhoods. Within those communities, Limona has built over 2,000 homes

for families to enjoy. In order for their vision to become a reality, Limona worked diligently with municipal staff, and have been open to public opinion to ensure

that their projects are compatible with the community plan. They have been continually recognized for the energy efficient and environmentally sensitive technologies incorporated into all of their projects. The Limona Group’s accomplishments have led to many accolades and awards for quality and service. They earned over seventy CARE Awards since the year 2000, including the Built Green Builder of the Year in seven separate years. B.C. Hydro Power Smart Division also honoured them as Builder of the Year for the Province for their outstanding strides in building energy efficient homes. For Mike Baier and John Sercombe, the best recognition of success has been the compliments from their many satisfied home owners. For more information visit: limonagroup.com, or call: 250-474-4771.

Collaborate with JAVA DESigns

S

Multiple Gold Winner at the 2018 CARE Awards

Where lines on paper become walls on site

ince 2006, Java Designs has been collaborating with each of their clients individually — to design the best possible plan to suit their needs and lifestyles. Java’s designers place special emphasis on custom and spec residential projects, taking pride in their flexibility and diversity in style and appeal. The team works with builders, developers, homeowners and designers to bring international inspiration and unique talent to each project. The CARE Awards represent the acknowledgement of Canada’s finest and most inspiring leaders in the construction and renovation industry. Attending this event is a chance for all West Coast companies in the realm of design and construction to represent their labour of planning, methodical and meticulous process, and to demonstrate their finest standards in both form and function. The CARE Awards graciously appeal to people who are both in the industry and those who are not. Taking the initiative to continually exhibit how standards can be raised, Java Designs has received awards and acknowledgements in a number of categories. Java Designs’ team of designers come from well-educated design backgrounds, and their strength is derived through their process and

collaboration with their clients. What drives them is the ability to deliver the home and space designs they envision, along with their own personal flare. Java Designs creatively expand on their clients’ ideas. With the foundational belief that no matter what the project is, Java Designs’ process is built on their one-on-one initiative. In addition, the entire team collaborates and keeps each other fully informed on projects. Essentially, you’re not getting one designer’s aspect — you’re getting the entire team’s input. Java Designs has made positive transitions as a firm. Recently, they expanded the number of designers and moved into a new office space. In previous years, Java Designs recieved Gold Awards, and they continually receive recognition for their compelling design work on the Island. Their design asethetic and creative take on vision continue to be well recieved and sought after. Company owner, Kyle Leggett, has a background in mechanical engineering technology, and adds structural and roof knowledge to each project. Together, the team at Java Designs provides an amazing and diverse experience, allowing every home they design to be unique, functional and practical. 102-2871 Jacklin Rd.
