WARREN FREY - The Post, Amazon’s new Vancouver headquarters, is a Silver Award winner for the 2023 VRCA Awards of Excellence in the Trade Contractors over $4 million, Electrical Contractors over $8 million and Manufacturers categories.

VANCOUVER – The Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA) has announced the 2023 Awards of Excellence Silver Award winners, with a total of 107 entries including 79 projects that in total exceed $2.8 billion in construction value.

Forty-three Silver Ward winners were selected in 15 product categories and featured industrial, commercial, institutional, multi-family residential and special projects.

“Congratulations to this year’s Silver Award winners. I’ve been a fierce competitor in past awards, and I have seen firsthand the pride and excitement participants have when presenting their projects to the judges. Celebrating construction by annually recognizing these achievements and this passion is important to our industry and those who work in it,” VRCA president Jeannine Martin said.

OXFORD PROPERTIES GROUP – The Stack office building is a 2023 VRCA Awards of Excellence Silver Award winner in the General Contractors over $50 million and Electrical Contractors over $8 million categories.

“VRCA members offered up many difficult, complex, and impressive projects to the awards of excellence judging panel in 2023.  Determining the winners was particularly challenging this year.  The determination of the VRCA members in meeting and exceeding our clients’ expectations was evident in every category.  Congratulations to all entrants and to the silver award winners,” VRCA Awards of Excellence Committee chair Bob Proctor added.
