VICTORIA, BC (February 24, 2016)—Horizon Pacific Contracting is Vancouver Island’s first official HOLMES Approved Homes Partner Builder. In addition to Horizon’s award-winning custom home building practices and green building principles, Horizon will also be the only contractor to offer the exclusive HOLMES Approved Homes Program in Greater Victoria and the Gulf Islands.
“We’re excited to offer our clients this Program,” said Tim Agar, managing partner of Horizon. “This gives them third-party verification from an internationally recognized expert that our homes meet the highest quality standard out there, adding value now and at resale time. It’s another way to demonstrate the high caliber of homebuilding we have built our reputation on.”
Horizon Pacific Contracting was selected by Mike Holmes’ team based on the company’s longstanding history to quality craftsmanship and commitment to building right. Specializing in high quality renovations and custom homes, Horizon has earned a reputation for taking on tough challenges and building to exacting standards, making it one of Vancouver Island’s most sought-after general contractors.
Canada’s most trusted contractor, Mike Holmes, launched the HOLMES Approved Homes Program in 2011, which implements his mandate in new-home construction and gives homebuyers the opportunity to purchase a home built to his standards.
“I partnered with Horizon because they believe the same things I do,” said Mike Holmes. “They go beyond industry standards, and their projects, reputation and awards prove it.”
Every new build or major renovation registered in the HOLMES Approved Homes Program undergoes a series of inspections conducted by Approved Mike Holmes Inspectors. The inspection process ensures homes are built to the highest quality and energy efficiency standards, resulting in buildings that are safer, healthier, and that last longer. It also provides homeowners with HOLMES Approved Homes certification, proof that their home was built to Mike Holmes’ building specifications.
Horizon is the only builder in Victoria and the Gulf Islands offering the HOLMES Approved Homes Program to homebuyers. The first local home to be built under the program is already underway.
