Last month more than 300 people crowded into the Delta Sun Peaks Ballroom to recognize excellence in the residential construction industry throughout the central Interior of British Columbia.

Local builder, Copper Island Fine Homes Inc. of Blind Bay captured not just one award, but several.

The Blind Bay business brought home the prestigious gold award for both Best Customer Service and the Best Single Family Detached Home 1,500 to 1,999 square feet, as well as silver for Best Kitchen, in association with Renaissance Joinery Millwork and Design, of Salmon Arm.

“Taken by themselves, the words ‘customer service’ seem both simple and obvious. As business owners, we all want to provide good service because we know it is important to our clients, as well as the future well-being of our businesses,” says Greg Vistisen, owner and president of Copper Island Fine Homes stated. “We are extremely fortunate to be working with people who share the same commitment to customer service and quality construction.”

Vistisen expressed pride in his team, the local sub-trades and the suppliers who have supported the company’s efforts.

“Winning a Keystone Award in today’s housing market is an accomplishment to be proud of,” said CHBA first vice-president Nathan Stone.

“You are turning dreams into reality for many of British Columbia’s homeowners and home buyers with your creativity, passion and expertise.”
