Surrey, BC – On Saturday, March 9, Foxridge Homes Vancouver was recognized for its excellence in homebuilding at the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of BC’s 27th annual Georgie Awards gala, taking home the 2019 Georgie Award for “Single Family Production Home Builder of the Year.” The event was held at the downtown Vancouver Hyatt Regency in front of a sold-out crowd of more than 650 industry professionals.

The Georgie Awards are provincial in scope, showcasing association members’ commitment and dedication to the CHBA’s high standards of service. Award criteria includes environmental responsibility and support of CHBA BC environmental programs, industry involvement of the builder and support of CHBA BC initiatives, career development within the organization, charitable and social contributions to the community, innovation within the industry and mentoring of new professionals in the industry.


“This win could not have been possible without the hard work and dedication to quality by our entire team,” said Gary. “From plan designers who create thoughtfully designed home plans, to our estimating and construction teams who make it all come to life and to our sales and marketing department who ensure our beautiful homes are seen and loved by the masses.”

“Of course we can’t forget about our in-house warranty department that work tirelessly to ensure our homeowners are happy and well cared for after they move in,” Gary added. “Everyone at Foxridge Homes Vancouver had a hand in winning this Grand Georgie Award and we couldn’t be more proud!”


As the Georgie Award winner, Foxridge Homes Vancouver is an industry leader. The company places a strong focus on using sustainable and environmentally-friendly materials, as well as low-maintenance materials that reduce the need for sealants, chemical cleaners, and detergents.

Foxridge also prioritizes philanthropic engagement, having donated over $500,000 to the Surrey Hospital & Outpatient Centre Foundation.

The Award itself is the result of Foxridge staff pulling together, with incredible energy, innovation and teamwork.
