Greater Toronto Area, June 23, 2022 – The Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) recognized excellence in the design, construction, marketing and sales of new homes in the GTA at its 2022 BILD Awards, held on June 22.
BILD presented 48 awards in the categories of marketing, architecture, people and sales, and in the prestigious Pinnacle category. A group of 48 expert judges from across North America and Europe determined the winners from 900 submitted entries.
“The BILD Awards is one of the largest and most prestigious awards programs of its kind in North America,” said Dave Wilkes, BILD President & CEO. “The impressive individuals and dynamic companies honoured with BILD awards are justifiably proud of this recognition of their achievements amongst their peers and the public.”
