It is always a proud moment for Ryan Design when our clients are the recipients of awards as
eQHomes was recently. At the 32nd Annual SAM Awards, the Greater Ottawa Homebuilders
Association recognized them with honours for Best Attached Bungalow for their Augusta model
and more impressively Best Community of the Year for eQuinelle . The SAM Awards celebrate
excellence in sales and marketing innovation in the homebuilding industry.
The award winning eQuinelle community was recognized as a magnificent master-planned
lifestyle community on 450 acres sculpted out of the Kemptville countryside. It is a breathtaking
site plan situated close to the Ottawa River and centered around the championship calibre golf
course. The judges were impressed with the community layout that allowed enclaves of
bungalows, semis, townhomes and low-rise condominiums to come together seamlessly as one
organic and cohesive whole, with a network of well laid-out roads and engaging streetscapes.
Combined with an array of community features such as playgrounds, a splash pad, basketball
courts, future ski trails, and a 20,000 sq.ft. clubhouse with a swimming pool, yoga studio, and
billiards room, the community offers residents an incredible variety of four season activities.
The Augusta, a 1,329 sq.ft. bungalow town that featured two spacious bedrooms and 2 baths
was awarded the Best Attached Bungalow Model. A large open concept kitchen with adjacent
Great Room and Dining Room made entertaining a breeze while an assortment of great optional
upgrades such as a sunroom, optional ensuite and optional finished basement gave
homeowners a good level of customization for their new home.
Once again, all of us at Ryan Design are proud to congratulate the entire eQHomes team on their success at the 32nd Annual GOHBA SAM Awards and look forward to working with them in the future to bring more award winning communities to life.
