TORONTO, May 2 /CNW/ - Mattamy Homes was named 2011 Home Builder of the
Year by the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD)
at the 31st Annual BILD Awards, held April 29, 2011.
Originally established in 1998, the Home Builder of the Year award was
created to recognize the builder who sets the standard for the rest of
the industry by their leadership in improving the overall image of the
industry. The award is based on quality, service and customer
commitment from the moment the agreement of purchase and sale is signed
right through to post-closing service period.
To qualify, BILD requires a list of the builder's recent occupants in
various communities who, in turn, rate their satisfaction with the
builder by completing a BILD-issued survey.
Mattamy Homes is no stranger to this award - the BILD Awards' most
prestigious honour - having won Home Builder of the Year thrice before
in 2001, 2007 and 2009.
"To say that Mattamy's victory is not surprising would be an
understatement," said BILD President and CEO Stephen Dupuis. "This is a
builder that's well-known for quality, not only in home building, but
also in customer satisfaction and giving back to the community."
In 2010, Mattamy Homes donated over $2 million to local communities and
charities, on top of a $10 million donation to the new Oakville
Hospital by the company's CEO Peter Gilgan.
Throughout the night, BILD's social media team documented the event's
proceedings with live updates via Twitter (twitter.com/bildgta),
Facebook (facebook.com/bildgta), Youtube (youtube.com/bildgta) and
BILD's official online blog (bildblogs.ca). For a complete list of
