VICTORIA RESIDENTIAL BUILDERS ASSOCIATION

VICTORIA RESIDENTIAL BUILDERS ASSOCIATION

hope you enjoy our magazine highlighting the 30th Anniversary of the CARE Awards presented by the Victoria Residential Builders Association and our generous industry sponsors. Through the decades, we have encountered many challenges, from recessions to today’s COVID-19 pandemic, yet VRBA members always find a way to provide housing needed in the community. Once again, our builders, designers, trades and suppliers have raised the bar of excellence, demonstrated by the outstanding Gold winning projects in this magazine. Often there are very few judging points separating Gold winners and the Silver Finalists, which may be viewed at careawards.ca.

If you are considering a new home or renovation, our members’ contact information is listed in this supplement and online at vrba.ca. I encourage you to take advantage of the products and services offered by our valued CARE Awards sponsors. The CARE Awards and supplement are not possible without their support. Enjoy and best wishes, Norm Verbrugge CARE Awards Chair and President Victoria Residential Builders Association

elcome to our CARE Awards magazine. We are fortunate to continue building and presenting homes during this challenging pandemic. Housing is a critical part of our society, providing shelter, employment, as well as communities for families and people of all ages and backgrounds. The CARE Awards offer recognition for a wide range of housing – waterfront dream homes, family subdivisions, townhomes, condominiums and affordable housing projects. These award-winning projects are the result of builders, designers, trades and suppliers collaborating to create exceptional homes.

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. 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

CELEBRATING THREE DECADES OF HOUSING EXCELLENCE

V

RBA is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the CARE Awards and we have been very fortunate to return to the Fairmont Empress Hotel for a live event. While last year’s virtual event enabled us to continue showcasing the winning projects to the public, the gala is a special celebration. The housing industry’s top builders, designers, trades and suppliers gather to share projects, experiences and congratulations. This year marks three decades of VRBA’s annual housing celebration and I have been fortunate to have managed more than 20 CARE Awards events.

Thank you to our members and Gold, Silver, Bronze and Media Sponsors, including the Times Colonist producing this outstanding supplement. Also a special mention to CFAX’s Al Ferraby for always making the CARE Awards entertaining and memorable.

Thank you all! Debra Edge, 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.

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.

2. Maintain Standards – All VRBA members must agree to our Code of Ethics.

A word of advice – before hiring an “awardwinning” builder, ask about the standards supporting the awards program.

3. Consumer Protection – We avoid confusion where consumers might mistake a non-member for a VRBA member qualified by the above diligence and standards.

Or better yet, simply hire a VRBA member through our popular online Expression of Interest at vrba.ca/hire-a-builder/.

We do our best to ensure CARE Awards

RENOVATION REBATE NEEDED FOR SEISMIC SAFETY, ASBESTOS

T

he federal and BC governments should consider a renovation rebate or tax credit to promote seismic safety and mitigation of asbestos in homes. There 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

CARE Awards 2021.indd 10

for protection against an inevitable, major earthquake. A renovation rebate 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 govts to ensure these products were safe, which was not the case.

A renovation rebate is both an ethical obligation by governments that approved and subsidized asbestos materials, 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. Now is the time for all levels of government to step up and invest in jobs, health and safety. For more information, visit vrba.ca.

They can help you identify your vision in the most cost-effective way. Some consumers make the mistake of hiring a contractor on the advice of a friend. Many believe they are getting a “deal,” but that alleged “deal” can fade quickly and turn into major challenges. Your builder should have a professional contract, strong track record, as well as warranty and liability coverage.

Can a high-performance home also be stylish and affordable to run? Yes. We’re rethinking how British Columbians use energy every day. 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.
