Builder Profile: Lucchetta Homes takes home top awards

by Catherine Daley

Number One in Canada

It’s been quite the year for Lucchetta Homes and it’s not even over yet. On May 2nd, they were named Builder of the Year by the Niagara Home Builders’ Association (NHBA) 2017 Awards of Excellence. And on May 12th they received the top award for the Best Community Development of the Year from the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) for their development called the Residences of Hunters Pointe.

Director of sales and marketing, Kim Kopyl, expressed her enthusiasm prior to the CHBA win simply because Lucchetta Homes had been nominated. As a result of a new program, CHBA received a record number of entries for the 39th National Awards for Housing Excellence, and had to pare down thousands of entries to 700. This, alone, was an unexpected victory for Lucchetta. Over a two-week period, 80 judges evaluated all of the entries. “To have been selected as a national finalist was already an immense accomplishment,” said Kopyl.

NHBA Awards: Kim Kopyl (director of sales & marketing); Robert Lucchetta (co-principal); Dora Lucchetta; Brenda Lucchetta, Ed Lucchetta (co-principal).

Often referred to as the ‘Oscars’ of housing, 39 awards recognized the best in the industry. With stiff competition from builders across Canada, representatives from Lucchetta Homes made their way to St. John’s, Newfoundland to attend the coveted awards. “We are beyond humbled and ecstatic over our recent accomplishment at the CHBA awards,” said Kopyl. “It’s a tribute to all of our purchasers who entrusted us as their preferred builder.”

The Residences of Hunters Pointe not only captured the imagination of the homeowners who have chosen to live there, but also the judges as well. Resortstyle living is part of the community’s appeal. An impressive 14,000-squarefoot, amenity-filled community centre offers a state-of-the-art gym with a personal trainer, a registered massage therapist, fitness classes, a hot tub, a library and more.

Located in the heart of the Niagara Region, The Residences at Hunters Pointe benefit from a truly unique setting, overlooking the Welland Canal. Depending upon the home’s location, residents can relax in their yard and watch ships slowly cruise by, and all can enjoy strolling along the canal hiking trails.

The community is rich with activities and amenities – whether it’s swimming in the saltwater pool, playing tennis, unwinding in the fitness centre, or simply gardening in the backyard, residents have the choice to be as busy as they want to be.

The freehold environment is ideal for snowbirds and staycationers, as homeowners don’t have to worry about security features, cutting the lawn or shovelling the snow.

Ugo Lucchetta started the company more than 50 years ago. Lucchetta Homes quickly became known for their quality construction, craftsmanship and unparalleled customer service. Sons, Robert and Ed Lucchetta, are now at the helm and carry on the traditions started by their father, while upping the ante to be one of the best. Their hard work has paid off. “We are very honoured and proud to be a CHBA National Awards winner, and we sincerely congratulate all nominees and winners from the event.” said Ed Lucchetta. “Our attention to detail, along with our goal to exceed our clients’ expectations, has culminated in a luxury home and a resort-style community, exuding both class and functionality.”

The CHBA distinction is the latest in an impressive collection of awards garnered by Lucchetta Homes. In addition to receiving high, local praise from the NHBA as Builder of the Year, they were also awarded for Most Outstanding Production Home Over 1,800 square feet, Excellence in Green, and Best Website. Lucchetta Homes has also been recognized as the R-2000 Builder of the Year, the Energy Star Builder of the Year, and received national recognition for building Canada’s first Net Zero Ready Qualified Home under the CHBA guidelines.

Lucchetta Homes continually raises the bar. This commitment to excellence is reflected in the high ratings that they receive from Tarion Warranty Corporation, surpassing customer satisfaction levels with astounding referral rates. “Not only do we share this award [Best Community Development of the Year] with the proud owners who call Hunters Point home.” said Rob Lucchetta. “But we are also honoured to share this extraordinary acknowledgment with our tremendously talented team, trades, suppliers and purchasers.”
