It is one thing for us to assure you that we will design, plan, and build your renovation to craftsman standards. And that your renovation will be completed on-time and on-budget. It is a completely different matter for the local business community to acknowledge our professionalism, integrity, and design skills. That is why OakWood puts great stock in the ability to win key awards – not just occasionally but year-after-year.
Awards signal to you a homeowner, that OakWood has been independently and objectively reviewed by leading businesses and organizations in the regional marketplace. In addition to our own customer testimonials and references, awards represent validation that what we promise you – we will deliver to you.
OakWood won the 2011 BBB Torch Award for Marketplace Trust in the Home Improvement Category. The BBB introduced these awards in 1996 to recognize local businesses that maintain a solid commitment to conducting their businesses in an ethical manner. Companies are selected by an independent panel for their exceptional conduct in the marketplace.
Winners are recognized for “exceeding marketplace standards for ethics in their relationships with customers, employees, suppliers, peers, and the communities in which they do business.”
OakWood has been awarded the coveted Consumers Choice Awards for Ottawa’s Best Home Designer and Ottawa’s Best Renovator. OakWood was the first Ottawa Renovator to win both awards and the only Ottawa Renovator to win these awards every year since they were introduced in 2008.
These awards are unique to North America and are an initiative of the Consumers’ Choice Institute of Canada. All winners are determined by consumers, not a panel of judges or professional renovation experts. The Consumers Choice Awards are considered the seal of excellence and the coronation of local businesses’ efforts and achievements. It represents the most valuable reward of all: the knowledge that a company has earned the trust and loyalty of consumers in their community.
OakWood won the 2011 OBAA Mid-Market Business of the Year Award in the Bronze Category. This important award is given by the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce and Ottawa Business Journal in celebration of ethical businesses that contribute to Ottawa’s success through a demonstration of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. These awards are unique to Ottawa and winners are recognized for their “innovative drive, creativity and their passion for doing business in Ottawa.”
Each year GOHBA (Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association) recognizes excellence in house design in Ottawa. OakWood won the 2010 GOHBA House Design Awards for Renovations/Additions (under $60,000) and Renovations/Additions ($66,000- $99,000). In 2010, OakWood was also nominated for the GOBHA Safety Awards in the Builder Category. The Safety Awards recognize specific individuals for their outstanding contributions to work-site safety in an annual gala dinner that is attended by builders and trade-suppliers.
Two OakWood projects were nominated for Most Outstanding Renovation (over $500,000). OakWood was one of only two finalists to win in this prestigious category that drew nominations from across Ontario.
OakWood was further distinguished as a finalist for Most Outstanding Bathroom Renovation with two renovation projects making the finalist list.
