The Awards connect consumers with build and design professionals and is designed to establish trust and appreciation of the expertise required to confidently navigate the complexities of home building.

Since 2017 Nick Bray Architecture have been participating in the HAVAN Awards, formerly the Ovation Awards. Each year we look forward to preparing our submission and attending the Gala. The awards provide a great opportunity to network and acknowledge the incredible talent and creativity of the accomplished builders and designers in the Lower Mainland. Over the years we’ve been very honored by the recognition we’ve received which has in turn grown our business and recognition within the community. We wish all the HAVAN Awards finalists the best of luck!”
