Local building company wins excellence award

 | April 7, 2013

The Mibroc Group, who builds homes in Kamloops and Sun Peaks, has won a 2012 Georgie award for Best Multi-Family Low Rise Development for its residential development in Paloma, a Sun Rivers golf resort community.

The Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia’s (CHBA) Georgie Awards recognize and celebrate excellence in home building.

The Mibroc Group has won numerous awards in the past but this award was something special for the small business as it beat out several large companies.
Nicki Rhonner, executive assistant to Mibroc Group president Darryl Caunt, said the development was quite an achievement.

“This is the first time Kamloops has ever offered resort-style condominium living. It was an unmet need in the market,” said Rhonner. “It’s nice to receive recognition for our hard work.”

The CHBA also recognised the achievement.

“This just goes to show that British Columbia’s residential construction industry — whether big business or small — continues to raise the bar of quality and excellence in B.C.’s homes,” said CHBA president Nathan Stone.

Mibroc was also a finalist for a Grand Georgie this year — the Custom Home Builder of the Year category.
