Together with BC Housing, Built Green Canada announced winners in their inaugural Maverick Awards, which showcases sustainability in the built environment and the leaders behind it.

The Mavericks were judged by industry experts with extensive knowledge and diversity in experience and geographic markets.


The winners


Three winners of entries from British Columbia to Ontario were recognized for Ambassador, Innovation and Transformational. 

The Ambassador award went to Kelly Williams at Sterling Homes Edmonton for championing company-wide adoption of the Bult Green third-party certification programs, while bringing together trades and suppliers for full activation.

Kanas Corporation won the Innovation award. The company’s Orion is the tallest ICF building in Western Canada, certified Built Green Platinum, with a state-of-the-art cogeneration system providing 534 KW of electricity to the development.

The Transformational award went to Major Homes, which, guided by the Built Green program, underwent an evolution to become a leading energy and sustainability-focused builder. 

“Every day, we work alongside builders, renovators, restorers and developers and see remarkable leadership in sustainable building: in what is still a burgeoning sector of the industry,” says Built Green Canada’s CEO, Jenifer Christenson. “Our three winners embody our mission to progress industry toward more holistic sustainable building practices — these are our trailblazers.”
