Builders honoured at Spring Parade gala

  • Print

Last night, before a sold-out crowd at The Met, the awards ceremony for the recent Spring Parade of Homes took place.

It was an evening of excitement as 36 different builders took part in the Parade with 122 homes in 36 unique neighbourhoods. The timing was perfect as this past week has seen the first signs of spring weather this year.

The individual category winners are pictured in today's Free Press and, for the first time ever, there are individual homes that were multiple category winners. That's due to a new wrinkle to the judging introduced especially for the 2014 Parade.

In the past, five judges visited up to five homes in a specific category based on price-point and judged each home on 19 different criteria. This year, the number of judges and evaluations were unlimited as every person visiting the show homes was able to rate each home on a five-point scale in four different categories: Functionality, Traffic Flow and Room Proportion; Overall Value and Quality of Home; Interior Visual Appeal; and Special Design Features: Windows, Lighting, Trim, Built-Ins, Fireplaces.

The overall results were tabulated and the winners are listed today and can be found on the Manitoba Home Builders Association web site (www.homebuilders.mb.ca).

It was interesting to note that the number of ratings per home fluctuated throughout the City of Winnipeg and beyond. The distribution and frequency was widespread, thereby substantiating the premise that the Parade truly has something of interest for everyone and everywhere.

For those who did not get out to the various show homes during the Parade in March, fear not -- most of the 122 new homes are still available for viewing.

You can find the Spring Parade of Homes magazine on the Manitoba Home Builders Association website or at www.homes.winnipegfreepress.com

Mike Moore is the president of the Manitoba Home Builders' Association.
