MESSAGE FROM CASEY EDGE
he outstanding homes in this magazine represent years of expertise by VRBA builders, designers, trades and suppliers. For more than two decades, I have enjoyed working with VRBA members representing the industry’s best. Their contribution to our community ranges from advocating affordability and consumer protection to charitable giving. Our members’ emphasis on education and training is critical to addressing ongoing changes in the Building Code as well as municipal, provincial and federal regulatory challenges. Behind these projects is a wealth of knowledge and expertise required to professionally build homes in 2022.
If you are planning a new home or renovation or have any questions about the industry, feel free to contact us at vrba.ca A special thank you to the many voters participating in our popular People’s Choice Award Contest. The People’s Choice Award winner is also featured in this supplement and at careawards.ca. Best wishes, Casey Edge, Executive Director Victoria Residential Builders Association

VRBA Standards Important for CARE Awards

A Celebration of Housing
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.
MESSAGE FROM DEBRA EDGE
Three important reasons are:
Administration & Events Manager Victoria Residential Builders Association
he CARE Awards event is an opportunity to celebrate housing achievements in our community. While there are still many challenges, it is important to recognize the significant progress over the years. The CARE Awards recognizes these achievements by VRBA’s builders, designers, trades and suppliers and enables them to share projects, experiences and congratulations.
I appreciate the opportunity to manage this valuable tradition. Thank you members and Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Media Sponsors for another outstanding event and magazine. Debra Edge, Administration & Events Manager Victoria Residential Builders Association
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 nonmembers 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-builder. Visit us at vrba.ca and careawards.ca. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Congratulations 2022 CARE Award Winners & Nominees!

COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
STRATO – FEATURED COLOUR: A CONTEMPORARY CLASSIC. CRISP WHITE BACKGROUND WITH FEATHERY CONTRASTING AMBER AND GOLD VEINING, STRATO BRINGS TO LIFE SOFT MOVEMENT WITH A GLOSSY SHEEN.
rom our humble roots back in the 1960s to today, as one of the largest countertop fabricators in North America, a lot has changed over the years. But the one thing that hasn’t is our commitment to quality craftsmanship and exceptional customer service. Established in the heart of the Canadian prairies, our founders started FLOFORM Industries in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1961. Our first location – a 7,000-square-foot facility– was home to only seven skilled craftsmen. Today, with 16 retail locations and eight fabrication facilities across western Canada and the northwest U.S, employing over 700 people, we couldn’t be prouder of where we’ve been – and where we’re headed. From one Canadian success story to another, FloForm is proud to be an exclusive
distributor of HanStone quartz, Canada’s only quartz brand. All their North American quartz is proudly manufactured in their state of the art facility in London, Ontario. HanStone quartz is known for its superior quality and exceptional design. Hanstone has its finger on the pulse of the quartz countertop industry. All HanStone quartz is composed of 93% natural Canadian quartz crystals and are non-porous and stain-resistant. More durable than granite, quartz is scratch and chip resistant and requires no chemical sealers; just clean with soap and water. Visit our FloForm Victoria Showroom at 201-620 Finlayson Street to view these designs. Call 877 FLOFORM or visit FLOFORM.com to take the first step toward your new countertops.
VISIT OUR FLOFORM VICTORIA SHOWROOM AT 201-620 FINLAYSON STREET TO VIEW THESE DESIGNS. CALL 877 FLOFORM OR VISIT FLOFORM.COM TO TAKE THE FIRST STEP TOWARD YOUR NEW COUNTERTOPS.

Renovation Rebate Needed for Seismic Safety, Asbestos
23 showrooms across British Columbia SPLASHESONLINE.COM
here are hundreds of tremors and small earthquakes annually in our region that usually go unnoticed. They are constant reminders we live in a subduction zone where large earthquakes can happen any time. Experts say in the next 50 years, there is a 30% chance of a damaging earthquake, and a 10% to 15% chance of a massive earthquake. Thousands of older homes in our community require anchor bolts, tie-downs and other measures for protection against an inevitable, major earthquake. A renovation rebate/tax credit could also help cover the costs of asbestos abatement, a toxic product approved years ago by the government and now costing homeowners thousands of dollars to remove. The federal govt helped install asbestos in homes through their Canadian Home Insulation Program (CHIP) offering grants for insulation such as Zonolite. Asbestos can be also found in stucco, drywall, roof shingles, window putty, vinyl floor tiles, wiring, cement, and more. Consumers and contractors relied on federal and provincial governments to ensure these products were safe, which was not the case.
A renovation rebate/tax credit is an ethical obligation by government as well as a responsible investment in public health and safety. This would also create tax revenue by requiring receipts, helping to battle the underground economy while creating skilled jobs in every community. Saskatchewan has a renovation tax credit where homeowners may save up to $2,100 in provincial income tax by claiming a 10.5% tax credit on up to $20,000 of eligible home renovation expenses. BC should follow suit especially considering our exposure to potentially catastrophic seismic events. For more information, visit vrba.ca

By building with high-efficiency gas appliances and our innovative energy solutions like Renewable Natural Gas (RNG), you can meet or exceed emission requirements, while still providing owners with comfort, style, convenience and affordable energy options. That’s energy at work. Talk to us about carbon-neutral RNG, high-efficiency heating equipment and BC Energy Step Code rebates. fortisbc.com/energyteam FortisBC Energy Inc. uses the FortisBC name and logo under license from Fortis Inc.

Butler Concrete and Aggregate Ltd.
“Today we are transforming the way we do business to take action on climate change for future generations” Travis Butler, President, Butler Concrete and Aggregate CARBON REDUCTION STRATEGY
At Butler Concrete & Aggregate Ltd. we are proud to offer our customers the cleanest and greenest concrete backed by evidence-based and third-party verified Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). As populations and demand for buildings grow, reducing our carbon emissions is imperative to our operations. We have achieved the lowest published embodied carbon values in North America by focusing on three key pillars: 1) sustainable resources, 2) innovative technology, and 3) reducing transportation emissions. Your decision to build with us means your development will have a net positive impact on the local built environment.
Our sustainable procurement practices ensure all materials align with our values to protect the environment and the community where we operate. Therefore, we evaluate the full supply chain of our products including the cement component of our concrete. We source local cement from Lafarge Canada Inc., specifically utilizing GUL cement (Portland Limestone Cement) which uses less clinker thereby yielding a 5 – 10% reduction in carbon emission. In combination with GUL cement, we use NewCem (Slag Cement) - this allows for higher replacement rates contributing to a low carbon circular economy. Sourcing cement from Lafarge Canada Inc. allows us to accelerate our climate action.
