A Delta Secondary grad has carved out a sterling reputation in B.C.’s burgeoning residential construction and renovation industry over the past quarter-century. Graeme Huguet, the owner of My House Design/Build/Team, is celebrating his company’s success that includes over 100 industry-related awards to date.
My House Design/Build/Team recently added 14 more awards to the trophy case from four prestigious competitions – the BC CHBA’s (Canadian Homebuilder Association) Georgie Awards, Metro Vancouver’s HAVAN Awards for Housing Excellence, CHBA’s National Awards for Housing Excellence and CHBA’s Okanagan Housing Awards of Excellence.
Most impressively, My House was awarded Renovator of the Year in both Metro Vancouver and the entire province.
“To celebrate our recent honours and to support our local community during this difficult time, My House Design/Build/Team is now offering 14 per cent rebate off preliminary design and permit planning services,” says Huguet. “It is important for us to recognize where we started, how far we’ve come and all those who have supported us. We’re excited to showcase all that we can do right here at home, in Delta.”
Huguet says the backbone of his company’s success is the great team that’s been assembled, many of whom have been with My House for 20, 25, or even 30 years. It’s also due to a start-to-finish process, which begins with seven full-time designers and includes in-house trades, that produces consistent results time after time.
Huguet says awards are nice, but it’s what clients have to say that matters most. “The biggest accolades we can get are from satisfied clients, their letters of reference and passing our name on to their friends and family,” he says. “We treat every project like an award winner.”
Huguet says the company’s well-earned reputation as an industry leader means customers’ expectations are high, which he considers a good thing, and My House goes above and beyond to meet them, including offering a 2-5-10 warranty on every project, not just on new construction.
“We make our actions speak louder than words. There’s a lot of talk in this business, but we ensure we back it up.”
