Community of the Year

DRHBA Awards of Excellence 2022 | Durham Region Home Builders' Association


The Community of the Year Award is bestowed upon the builder whose project combines the best overall products, site, advertising, promotion, on-site presentation and architectural design. Judges will grade the entries in various different categories and the cumulative total score will be used to determine the Community of the Year.

The written submission should include an outline of why you believe your community is deserving of the Community of the Year Award, including information on the entire community (open spaces, recreation areas, site plan, logo, innovative streetscapes, etc.).

Note: DRHBA reserves the right to perform a project audit for finalists in this category.

The 2022 Awards of Excellence pertain to projects launched or ongoing in the 2021 calendar year.
