Building Communities - Canadian Home Builders Association Central Interior
Updated: Apr 28
The Canadian Home Builders' Association (CHBA) has served as "the voice of Canada's residential construction industry” since 1943. With a strong membership of over 8,500 consisting of home builders, renovators, land developers, trade contractors and more, CHBA has been advocating for the residential construction industry throughout British Columbia.
The Central Interior branch of the CHBA (CHBA-CI), has been fostering an environment that is both professionally and financially conducive to residential construction throughout the Central Interior region of the province. The CHBA-CI has been playing an important role in the construction industry, not just through leadership and advocacy, but also by encouraging those within the industry to constantly meet higher standards through the Keystone Awards.
The Keystone Awards recognize outstanding work and achievement in construction and have been celebrating the industry’s best of the best since 2005. The CHBA-CI offers more than 20 categories in which members who have built or renovated a residence in British Columbia's Central Interior and/or East Kootenay regions can enter their projects.
For ARPA Investments, the Keystone Awards have always been an event the team anticipated to celebrate other excellent builders and developers in the region.
Last year, ARPA won gold for the Best Multi-Family Low Rise (Condo) category and was also a finalist in Best Public Private Partnership and Best Marketing Project Website all for The Colours on Spirit Square.
This year, ARPA Investments is a Silver Finalist in three categories for the 2023 Keystone Awards:
Best Single Family Detached Home
Best Bathroom Renovation
Best Innovative Construction/ Architecture/Design.
“ARPA is proud to be a member of the CHBA-CI,” noted Joshua Knaak, partner of ARPA Investments. “The Association is committed to providing Canadians with access to affordable housing that meets their needs while safeguarding the interests of both homebuyers and homeowners – a value important to ARPA as well. Furthermore, CHBA strives to promote success among its members and provides resources to inform consumers when they invest in new homes or renovations.”
It is evident that CHBA-CI plays a crucial role in encouraging excellence within Canada's construction industry and benefits both members, as well as the public.
