Chestermere home builders Urban Indigo Fine Homes won the BILD Award for Best New Home in the category of $550,000 to $619,999 and were nominated for the Best Small Volume Builder of the Year on April 13.
The BILD Awards support builders and suppliers within the home building industry. It is a very sought-after award, said Urban Indigo Fine Homes Founder and Co-Owner Fatima Nasser.
“It makes us feel like we’re doing something right, and our product is standing up against the bigger builders,” Nasser said.
To receive a BILD Award, the submitted project must be judged by a group of impartial experts within the home building industry.
Being a finalist among 717 homebuilder nominees who have been in the industry for many years was very rewarding, Nasser said.
The awards bring the home building industry and community together to celebrate and recognize the best quality, design, and innovation of the year.
To have homes recognized in the building community, which have achieved excellence from peers in the industry is an incentivizing factor for families within the Chestermere area, Nasser added.
Not only are the BILD Awards an incentive for families, but receiving the recognition also encourages healthy competition between builders.
“It’s such a great opportunity, just the event itself, and the recognition for being a finalist is a huge feat and accomplishment,” Nasser said.
“The recognition helps us stay humble and honoured that we’re doing something right. We want to keep up that momentum to help us do better and be better every year,” she said.
Nasser and her husband Moe Abdullah have established positive leadership within the trade, which they believe has gotten them to get to this point.
Nasser and Abdullah are characterized by ambition, drive, and leadership, and strengthened by the bond of a relationship.
“Moe an I had been a team since day one,” Nasser said.
The partners are grateful to have entrepreneurial success and have a shared philanthropic vision in which they have been able to build homes for clients.
“We believe each duo is greater than the sum of its parts,” Nasser said.
Married couples working together is nothing new, however, when it works well, husband and wife partnerships are spectacular, Nasser said.
“This working relationship has accomplished amazing things,” she added.
