Horizon Contracting Earns Multiple Awards for Building Excellence

March 2018 has been a big month for Horizon Pacific Contracting, with recognitions for building excellence at the local, national, and international levels.

Horizon earned second place in the Fine Homebuilding Readers’ Choice Awards, seeing readers vote for their favourite home from ten finalists selected by Fine Homebuilding Magazine. The custom home project, titled Family-Centered Modern, was the only Canadian home in the 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards and is the only Canadian home to place in the top three in the history of the competition.

The awards saw a panel of out-of-province industry professionals select a record number of entries and winners.
