North Shore-based Shakespeare Homes  has been nominated for a pair of 2013 Georgie Awards.

The awards, handed out by the Canadian Home Builders' Association, recognize the best in B.C.'s construction industry.

Shakespeare Homes is a finalist in best residential renovation ($300,000-$500,000 category) for a  home in Deep Cove and best residential renovation (over $800,000 category) for a heritage-themed home rebuild and expansion on Mountain Highway.

“There are advantages in having in-depth experience on the North Shore. We live here and we build here, so we know the community, the terrain and the specific municipal construction and design rules," explained Shakespeare president Mark Cooper in a release.

Cooper noted that both of his company's renovations required municipal approval for "intricate plans to protect nearby creeks."

In total, there are  43 different Georgie Award categories for building projects and marketing programs.

"The level of excellence and innovative designs in building and renovation by CHBA members in British Columbia is reflected in the outstanding submissions," said association CEO Neil Moody.

The winners will be announced on Feb. 1.
