TORONTO, March 13, 2017 /CNW/ - The GTA's top renovators and custom home builders have been recognized by the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) at its annual Renovation and Custom Home Awards.
Created by BILD in 1999, the awards program recognizes professional renovators for professionalism, quality of work and industry leadership. Nominees are evaluated by a team of industry professionals and the Renovator of the Year award is also decided based on survey results from clients.
The Renovator of the Year award, which recognizes the renovator who sets the standard for the rest of the sector in their leadership and commitment to customer service and their contribution to the overall image of the renovation industry, was presented to Men at Work Design Build Ltd.
Men at Work Design Build Ltd. also earned two other prestigious awards; The Best Renovation $300,000 to $500,000 for expanding a small cramped semi into an extended spacious family home, and the Best Home Renovation $75,000 to $150,000 for converting a dark and dated kitchen to a bright and open eating and entertaining area.
The Best Renovation Under $75,000 was awarded to Binns Kitchen + Bath Design for transforming an outdated kitchen into a large contemporary space featuring an open concept design.
Super 7 Group won the Best Renovation $150,000 to $300,000 award for its unique renovation and complete interior demolition of an existing house on Lake Ontario.
Two renovators shared the award for Best Renovation $500,000 or more. Lewitt Construction Inc. won for maintaining the façade of a 1940's Tudor while completely gutting and transforming the interior to a modern space. Co-winner TIPEQ Inc. reinvented a 1905 beach home as a light-filled, energy efficient modern home.
Keystone Ridge Developments won the award for Best Condominium Renovation for renovating a 1,800-square-foot dated Toronto condo and giving it an elegant modern look.
Chatsworth Fines Homes was presented with the Best Custom Home Award for creating a beautiful luxury home that included environmental sustainable features.
"This year's winners demonstrate the importance of working with professional renovators and custom builders while raising the bar for the rest of the industry," said BILD vice-president of membership and RenoMark program manager, Helen Batista. "As the RenoMark program grows, so does the quality of the submissions we receive every year."

The program helps homeowners identify and find professional renovators who have agreed to abide by a renovation-specific Code of Conduct.
