During the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association’s AGM early in March, Barry J. Hobin was among several recipients of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, presented in recognition of outstanding commitment to the community.
Invited to share a brief statement, Barry said “I feel privileged to be able to create buildings for individual clients while contributing to the built landscape of the city of Ottawa. From the Jewish community campus to the Mission Hospice and the new St. Patrick’s home, each project allows us to interact with the leaders of our larger community and experience how design can serve a larger purpose.”
Other recipients included: Donna Hicks of Habitat for Humanity, Claude Des Rosiers of Boone Plumbing and Heating and Alan Cohen of Soloway Wright LLP.
