The Canadian Home Builders Association Central Interior (CHBA-CI) has unveiled the finalists for the 9th annual Keystone Awards, and two Sun Peaks businesses have made the list.
Meranti Developments Ltd. and Powder Ventures Excavating Ltd. are both silver award winners and will compete for gold recognition at the Keystone Awards Gala at the Delta Sun Peaks on September 28.
Meranti was a gold and silver medal winner in 2009; this will be the first time Powder Ventures has been shortlisted for the distinction.
“I think it’s very cool (being nominated for this award),” said Powder Ventures owner, Jason White. “We work really hard and we’ve done a lot of expanding . . . we’ve expanded probably twice the volume and twice the people and equipment (this year), so I guess it’s showing that we’re going in the right direction. Hopefully we can get a Keystone.”
The CHBA-CI’s mandate is to deliver high quality construction services, education, and training to community members, keep pace with new industry technologies and innovations and provide advocacy to improve the affordability of homes. They present the Keystone awards annually.
