Lucchetta Homes Captures Three Wins at CHBA’s National Awards for Housing Excellence

Lucchetta Homes was one of the biggest winners of the evening at the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) annual National Awards for Housing Excellence held last Friday, taking home three CHBA Awards.

The Niagara-area builder secured the awards in the following categories:

  • Best Attached Home under 1,500 sq.ft. –  “Riverside” Hunters Pointe
  • Best Print Ad “Riverside” Hunters Pointe  
  • Best Brochure– Davis Heights

“Simply to be nominated amongst the very best in Canada is a tremendous achievement, and testament to our entire team,” said Kim Kopyl, Director of Sales and Marketing. “Winning these distinguished awards truly validates the caliber of excellence that Lucchetta Homes consistently provides to our homebuyers.” 

The recent awards cap off a year where the company garnered widespread industry recognition. In 2018 alone, Lucchetta Homes won, or was nominated for, more than 30 awards by all levels of builders’ associations – local, provincial and national.

Recent notable awards include “Community of the Year” (CHBA), “ENERGY STAR Builder of the Year”(EnerQuality),  “Excellence in Green” (Niagara Home Builders’ Association – NHBA), “Best Sales Team” (NHBA),  “Community of the Year”(NHBA) and “Best Kitchen”(NHBA). 

Lucchetta Homes was also the only builder in Ontarioto have been selected as a finalist in five categoriesfor this year’s CHBA Awards.

Every year, home builders, designers, and renovators from across Canada compete for the coveted awards. Recognized as the “Oscars” of housing, the event bestows 40 awards to honour the best-of-the best in Canada in a broad range of categories: new homes, community development, Net Zero homes, modular innovation, design, renovation and marketing excellence.

Over 700 entries were submitted across the country this year. Nearly 180 judges shared the challenge of reviewing each entry over several weeks.  The entries were then narrowed down to the top five finalists from which a winner was carefully selected.  The competition was compelling. 

“This could never be possible without the hard work and dedication of our talented team, trades, and partners,” said Kopyl. “On behalf of Lucchetta Homes, we dedicate these awards to our loyal homeowners!” 

"Being a boutique builder, we are proud and honoured to have won such prestigious national awards,” said Robert and Ed Lucchetta, Principals of Lucchetta Homes. “We build every home as if we wouldlive in it ourselves, and this achievement further authenticates our focus on homeowner satisfaction.”  

It’s this recognition that has inspired the Lucchetta brothers to keep upping the bar. “Legendary Luxury,” is something that everyone at Lucchetta Homes strives diligently to provide –“wherewe not only build homes, but foundations to live your best life.”

“Feedback from our judges was that the caliber of entries this year was exceptionally high,” said CHBA CEO Kevin Lee. “This year the competition increased its focus to the context of the project – such as who the home or community was built for.  Our judges really had to consider how well the project’s desired outcomes were met. The finalists this year represent the best in Canada.”

CHBA outgoing president Nathan Stone commented: “As a homebuilder, I am tremendously impressed by the quality, design and innovation that this year’s Award winners represent. Our 2019 Award finalists and winners are leaders in our real estate industry, and we are all very proud of what they have achieved in showcasing our industry. They certainly represent the best-of-the-best.”
