EnerQuality Awards 2015 The EnerQuality Housing Innovation Forum and EQ Awards gala recognized excellence in sustainable construction projects on Thursday, February 25, 2016. EnerQuality is Canada’s premiere certifier of energy efficient homes and has succeeded in helping more than 60,000 homes become Energy Star certified since 2005.
That day, construction industry representatives attended a number of informative forums that discussed the future of homebuilding, Ontario’s new Climate Change Strategy and more. The forum was followed by the EQ Awards ceremony and dinner, recognizing the industry’s leading residential construction innovators and influencers. “Ontario’s homebuilding industry has a commendable track record of creativity and innovation,” said Corey McBurney, president of EnerQuality. “ENERGY STAR for New Homes is a success story that all Ontarians should be proud of, proving that voluntary, builder-led initiatives work.” This year EnerQuality launched two new awards: Net Zero Builder of the Year, awarded to Reid’s Heritage Homes, and Building Innovation – Mid & High Rise, awarded to Tridel.
