Celebrating the industry at the Building Excellence and Residential Growth Awards (BERG). It’s here we recognize achievements in high quality workmanship, consumer service, energy efficiency, marketing, and professionalism in business dealings.
We have listened and are making some changes!
The past year has been a very different year for many and, while it came with its challenges, it also had many successes. We are very excited to celebrate the success of our members at this year’s Building Excellence and Residential Growth Awards (BERG)!
We have been connecting with our members and we have heard your concerns around the BERG application process this year. The pandemic has created some barriers which have impacted many of our members and limited their ability to apply for the BERG awards. After hearing these concerns CHBA-NL has made the decision to extend the application process for the awards until September 3rd, 2021. The criteria will also be extended to any projects completed between September 1st, 2019 to September 1st, 2021. You will be able to select the applicable award year in your application.
We hope that this extension will help alleviate some of the barriers to the application process. If you have any questions on the application process please do not hesitate to contact our office at 709-753-2000. We are looking forward to celebrating the industry at the (BERG) with you in October 2021. Details to follow pending public health restrictions.
