2009 GOHBA Housing Design Awards - 5

Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association GOHBA President’s Message By Greg Graham or those of you who were not able to attend, I speak for everyone in saying that you missed the best Design Awards Gala ever. We are fortunate to have access to the National Gallery, one of the best venues in the country to hold such an event. Our thanks to the Gala committee, who worked so hard to make this event such a success. Linda Denyes from Larco chaired the committee and was ably assisted by one of the best ‘sponsoring experts’ in the association, Paddy Richer. Ron Desjardin of PMA returned by popular demand to MC the night and set a record by finishing in the shortest time ever. This left time for attendees to dance to the tunes of ‘The Rainman’ or network while marveling at the many design panels that were on display. We are grateful to our many judges who took the time to share their expert knowledge. Congratulations to Boone Plumbing for winning the prestigious Enbridge Hall of Fame Award, which is granted to a member company that has contributed at least 20 years of service and dedication to the housing industry and the GOHBA. I was very pleased that The Ottawa Citizen was selected to receive the Fred Nielson Trophy as the GOHBA Company of the Year. Not only is the Citizen a very important sponsor of the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association, but it consistently provides high quality coverage of what our industry achieves on a weekly basis. Congratulations to Bob Ridley for winning the Colonel Boss Trophy, awarded to the individual who’s shown outstanding dedication and service to our association. Bob is past president of this association, chairman of the customer service committee, a major contributor to the OHBA board of directors and sits on the Tarion board of directors. Lastly, congratulations to all of the winners in our many categories for all of their hard work over the past year and for sharing their award-winning talents and projects. As GOHBA president, I had the privilege of attending both the Ontario and Canadian Design Award programs and can state with certainty that our members produce work that is second to none across the country. I only wish that more members would make submissions to these programs because they would be winners there as well. This has been a challenging year for the housing industry in Ottawa. It’s encouraging that we end it on such a positive note as the Design Awards Gala. We are blessed with the privilege of working in one of the best industries in Canada. I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year. 2009 GOHBA Awards 5 2009 Housing Design Awards Issue 5 7 President’s Message 2009 GOHBA Housing Design Awards • Winners • Sponsors The Ottawa Citizen People’s Choice Award Christopher Simmonds and 2H Interior Design take home the coveted People’s Choice Award for their modern but timeless design. 17 18 Sponsor Acknowledgment Index to Advertisers/ Advertiser.com Published for: Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association 108-30 Concourse Gate Ottawa, Ontario K2E 7V7 Phone: 613.723.2926 Fax: 613.723.2982 Executive Director: John Herbert Special Events Coordinator: Valerie Newton Membership & Bookkeeper: Heather-Ann Duguay Administration: Sarah Robinson Published by: Editor: Jesse Hettig Project Manager: Kim Davies Advertising Sales Director: Cheryll Oland Marketing Associate: Patti Callahan Account Representatives: John Byrne, Brenda Ezinicki, Trevor Perrault, Ainsley Tyler Layout & Design: Brenda Nowosad Advertising Art: Carrie Marsh @2009 Naylor (Canada), Inc.
