It’s that time of the year again; the Greater Ottawa Homebuilders’ Associations (GOHBA) Awards season is upon us. We are thrilled to say that this year’s haul has been very exciting on our end. Eight of the projects we photographed this past year have received awards in no less than 10 different categories, including the very coveted People’s Choice Award. We feel very privileged to be associated with such great clients and would like to extend our congratulations to all of them. Christopher Simmonds was the big winner this year with a spectacular total of 8 awards.
You can read more about the awards and see the full list of winners in this Ottawa Citizen piece.
