“Each Augusta Fine home that our team creates is special and uniquely suited to the family who will live there,” said Nicholas Carels, Vice-President, StreetSide Developments and recently of Augusta Fine Homes. “We collaborate extensively with our homeowners through the design and construction phases and it was very rewarding to see the result of that work acknowledged as being the best in class at the provincial level.”

StreetSide Developments also received awards for Best Multi-Family Duplex $350,000-$500,000 (The Mondavi), and Best Multi Family unit over $500,000 (The Opus).

Brad Armstrong, Vice-President, Communities Edmonton, also received an award for Exceptional Service, in recognition of his dedication and service to CHBA Alberta.

"It was an honour to receive the Exceptional Service Award from BILD Alberta in front of my peers this past fall, and I want to thank Qualico for the support and encouragement they have given me to volunteer with BILD," said Brad. "Volunteering with our industry association is an important part of the work that we do. Not only does it help to advance the interests of builders and developers at the provincial and local levels, but it can minimize the impact of rising costs and over-regulation and help raise Qualico’s profile with our industry colleagues, senior bureaucrats and elected officials."

Over the years, Brad has dedicated hundreds of hours to help represent industry as part of the Municipal Government Act review, has chaired the BILD Alberta Governance Council, and has chaired UDI Edmonton’s board. He has been an active member and sounding board providing feedback on information and research to the association. He continues to chair BILD Alberta’s Policy and Regulation Governance Council. This council helps guide the advocacy work BILD Alberta does on behalf of its members. Congratulations, Brad, on your achievement.
