Ovation Awards Finalist Nominees
Burnaby’s TQ Construction made a strong showing when the Homebuilders’ Association of Vancouver (HAVAN) revealed this year’s Ovation Award finalist nominees. These prestigious awards showcase the best of Metro Vancouver’s home construction industry, and with a record-breaking number of entries submitted, competition was intense. In addition to being nominated as Best Custom Home Builder of the Year, TQ’s custom residence Burnaby Mountain Inspiration is a contender in three categories — Best Custom Home ($1 million to $2 million), Best Special Feature, and Excellence in Building Science.
Designed specifically to allow the client and his active mother to age-in-place, this sophisticated rancher blends Australasian and minimalist influences then spices it up with subtle Industrial, Mid-century, and Art Deco aesthetics. The sense of flow between public and private spaces is effortless but firmly guided through subtle, almost unconscious detailing such as oak floors with herringbone pattern in open/common areas and straight-laid in private/family spaces.
Playful details to add a touch of whimsy the overall understated elegance include soft gold kitchen faucets and fixtures, an Escher-inspired backsplash in the laundry room, and dramatic floral wallpaper in mum’s ensuite. There’s even an elevated dog wash for the two four-footed family members who also reside here.
“It’s an honour and privilege to carry on my parents’ legacy of excellence,” says Henri Belisle who recently took over as president of the Burnaby-based company. “Their 34 years of hard work in design-build has made TQ Construction a well respected name throughout the local residential construction industry. I am committed to upholding the company’s core values and reputation as a progressive, innovative leader who provides top quality craftsmanship and no-compromise customer service. I believe anything worth doing is worth doing right, and I’m confident that TQ will continue to grow as we enter our next 34 years.”
TQ Construction has built and renovated hundreds of homes throughout Metro Vancouver. The company prides itself on its full service design-build model with sequenced planning process and choice of cost-plus or fixed price budgeting so clients have the option that best fits their specific needs. From initial concept to final completion, homeowners have complete peace of mind.
