Monterra Builders has been nominated for a Georgie Award in the Best Townhouse Development category  for its work on The Timbers in Courtenay.

The Courtenay company constructed The Timbers at the Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community.

The other four finalists are nominated for projects in the Lower Mainland.

Presented by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of BC and BC Homes, the awards showcase the residential construction industry.

“The level of excellence and innovative designs in building and renovation by CHBA members in British Columbia is reflected in the outstanding submissions received and reviewed by our professional panel of judges. We are looking forward to an exciting evening on Feb. 1, when the winners will be announced,” said Neil Moody, CEO of the association.

The 22nd annual awards cover projects and products built, renovated, developed, created and/or marketed for the period of Jan. 1, 2012 to July 31, 2013. An esteemed judging panel of industry professionals from outside B.C. recently judged all Georgie Awards entries in an intense and exhaustive three-day process.

Finalists and winners will be celebrated at a black-tie awards gala with featured guests and entertainment Feb. 1 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West.

Tickets to the gala will be available starting this month at www.georgieawards.ca.
