EQ Awards group photo

Ontario’s most Green home builders and suppliers were honoured Feb. 28 at the 2018 EQ Awards. More than 250 guests, including Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti, celebrated 20 years of EnerQuality along with the accomplishments of its leaders with the official announcement of the award winners.

“It speaks volumes to see how the longevity of EnerQuality and our certifications like Energy Star have continued to remain relevant and grow in impact over the years,” say Corey McBurney, president of EnerQuality. “The 2018 EQ Awards allowed the industry to celebrate where we have come from and spotlight the pioneers who are joining forces to carve a new path for the future with programs such as our Energy Star Multifamily Highrise certification.”

“The People’s Choice Award was an amazing new addition to the Awards, allowing us to involve the greater community in both recognizing and selecting the winner,” adds Shannon Bertuzzi, vice-president of market development at EnerQuality. “Our certifications are voluntary investments by our builders. EnerQuality is committed to ensuring the greater public is aware of the investment these builders are making for the sustainability of these communities.”

2018 Hall of Fame: Sean Mason, President, Sean Mason Homes

Sean Mason has been a dedicated proponent of Energy Star for New Homes since the very first days. From 2002 to 2013, he encouraged Green building and land initiatives at Mason Homes, when it was among the first three builders in Canada to participate in and certify with the then-new Energy Star program, and the first in Canada to make Energy Star its standard. Since Sean.castarted in 2013, the company has won numerous awards, including BILD’s Green Builder of the Year in 2015, and EnerQuality’s started Builder (Small Volume) in 2018. He has also been a finalist in BILD’s Places to Grow Project of the Year and People’s Choice Project of the Year, and BILD’s Best Lowrise Project (Built Category). At Sean.ca, started is a standard offering, certifying 100 per cent of its homes. Mason’s stamp has been on more than 1,000 started homes in the last decade.

“Sean.ca is about building modern, healthier and more affordable Green homes in a sustainable community, allowing residents to connect with their neighbours in a meaningful way,” Mason says. “The platform EnerQuality has provided with started has allowed us to prove our commitment to our homeowners through a trusted third-party certifications.”

Impact Award 2018: Tamarack Homes

Tamarack Homes received the EnerQuality 2019 Impact Award for making significant long-term voluntary progress in reducing carbon emissions and showing outstanding achievements through energy efficiency and sustainable practices. From its beginnings more than 70 years ago, Tamarack Homes has strived for the highest quality in construction and customer service by pursuing materials and technology that would become industry standards. Thirteen years ago, with the launch of a brand-new Ottawa community called Jackson Trails, Tamarack certified its first Energy Star home. Impressed with the results, Tamarack Homes committed the entire community to the new standard, a first for the entire region. Today, every home Tamarack builds carries the started certification.

“We are pleased to be recognized for our dedication to sustainability in the home-building industry,” says Chris Taggert, vice-president of Tamarack Homes. “The EnerQuality Impact Award symbolizes the commitment we make every day to prioritizing families, communities, and the environment.”

The Best in Adult Living comes to Peterborough

Mason Homes recently introduced the Arbour Condo Villas in Peterborough. Located within Parklands, Mason’s master-planned community will offer a limited release of 87 homes in a quiet enclave, including Classic and Courtyard bungalows, as well as bungalows with loft designs.

Recognized as a respected builder in Peterborough, Mason won the Builder of the Year and the Green Builder of the Year awards in 2016 from the Peterborough and Kawartha’s Home Builders’ Association. Mason also won the 2017’s Energy Star® for New Homes Builder of the Year.

Showcasing Mason’s popular Arts and Crafts exterior designs, these exceptional residences will range in size from 1,068 to 2,200 square feet. A variety of interior and exterior design options are available, along with your choice of fine features and finishes throughout.

The Arbour Condo Villas will be set against a backdrop of protected mature woodlands, green spaces, and will include beautiful community parks, ponds and walking trails.

THE COURTYARD COLLECTION

The residences of Mason’s Courtyard Villa Collection are aptly named as they feature a private, outdoor courtyard that’s perfect for relaxing or entertaining, and requires minimal maintenance and upkeep.

Designs in this collection feature rear-laneway, double-car garages that provide direct access from the home via a connector, which also contains a handy mudroom, laundry room and powder room. The positioning of the garage at the the back of the home enhances the interior living space, and allows for full width porches at the front.

THE CLASSIC COLLECTION

Mason Homes’ signature exterior elevations are highlighted on the Classic Collection. These home styles reflect Ontario’s rich architectural heritage.

Wider lots allow for welcoming porches and an abundance of windows at the front and at the rear of the homes. So as not to impose on the front facade, the double-car garages are set back and integrated as part of the overall design. Each home style is available in a range of professionally designed, exterior colour palettes, which augment the community’s charming streetscapes.

THE MASON ADVANTAGE

As with every new home built built by Mason, each one is Mike Holmes Certified and built to Energy Star® standards – saving you up to 20 per cent on your household energy consumption.

Celebrating more than 55 years of excellence in development, design and new home construction, Mason Homes remains one of Ontario’s most successful and forward-thinking new home construction companies.
