A developer who is well known in our area has received a lifetime achievement award.
The Ontario Home Builders' Association has presented the honour to President of FRAM Building Group, Frank Giannone.
FRAM built the Shipyards development in Collingwood and is one of nine groups to express interest in developing the town owned properties at the main beach in Wasaga Beach.
The OHBA says Giannone and his team were among the first to recognize the potential of building complete communities near transit lines.
Also at this awards ceremony, Courtney Dumond and Erika Pederson, from the Fireside Group, were given Special Recognition Awards.
That's for their involvement in various committees and events with the Simcoe County Home Builders' Association.
It also recognizes their efforts in organizing the 2019 OHBA Conference in Collingwood.
