Best in energy-efficient builders to be celebrated at EQ Awards

EQ Awards

EnerQuality, celebrating 20 years as the leader in energy-efficient certifications, is preparing to confer its annual EQ Awards in Toronto on Feb. 28.

“We are excited to be launching a refreshed version of our classic awards, bringing more networking, recognition and excitement for our builders who have worked hard to build a better future for our communities,” says Corey McBurney, president of EnerQuality.

In 2018, EnerQuality labelled its 100,000th energy-efficient home, released the new Energy Star Multifamily Highrise (New Construction) Pilot Program and continued its mission of helping builders and consumers save money while lowering their carbon footprint.

“To continue to spread the word and recognize the achievements of the industry, EnerQuality will proudly be launching the EQ Awards Magazine,” says Shannon Bertuzzi, vice-president, market development, at EnerQuality. “Many aren’t aware of the voluntary investment our builders make towards building healthier communities. We hope this commemorative magazine will continue to shine a light on their contributions throughout the year.”

For this year, EnerQuality also introduced a People’s Choice Award, created to involve the public in acknowledging those who are pushing boundaries in energy efficiency.”
