Citta’s Patio Court project is a finalist in this year’s Georgie Awards

An Oak Bay renovation project – a gold winner at the recent CARE Awards of Vancouver Island – has caught he eye of judges on the provincial stage.

The Patio Court project from Citta Group is a finalist in the Best Residential Renovation $100,000 to $299,999 category for this year’s Georgie Awards, hosted by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia.

Celebrating 25 years, the awards recognize excellence in home building and renovation in B.C. Finalists and winners were selected by a panel of out-of-province industry professionals and winners will be announceda March 11 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. With categories ranging from new residential construction and renovation to marketing and energy-efficiency, entries increased by 15 per cent from last year.

Citta’s Patio Court was part of a group of five houses that hadn’t been updated for many years, says Citta president Bill Patterson, suggesting judges and the public appreciate the authenticity of the project.

“I think it’s modernizing the aspects of a house that are important to people’s lifestyle now,” Patterson says, pointing to the open-layout kitchen and the mechanical upgrades.

At the same time, “the exterior was left completely authentic. All we did was repair where necessary and restore.”

Other Georgie finalists from the region include: Concert Properties’s Era, for Best Multi-Family Mid/High Rise Development; Aryze Developments’ Frank for Best Multi-Family Townhouse Development – Infill; and Falcon Heights Contracting’s Confluence and NZ Builders’ Gonzales Modern, both for Custom Home valued $900,000 to $1,299,999.

“The high-calibre and inspiring projects submitted each year by CHBA BC members is a large part of why the Georgie Awards program has thrived for 25 years,” says Neil Moody, CEO of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia.

“We are pleased to have another strong year of entries and finalists, and we look forward to announcing the winners at the gala.
