VANCOUVER – British Columbia’s best construction projects will be in the spotlight on Oct. 17.
The Vancouver Regional Construction Association is holding its 2023 Awards of Excellence gala next week at the Vancouver Convention Centre West where gold awards will go out to one silver award winner in each of 15 product categories. Award recipients held a reception on Sept. 27 to honour all 43 silver award winners.
Project-specific awards recognize achievements in industrial, commercial, institutional, multi-family residential, and special projects, along with manufacturers and suppliers and a heritage award.
Outstanding achievement awards will also be given out at the gala for construction workplace health and safety innovation, education leadership, innovation and productivity, and zero emissions building leadership.
Individuals will also be recognized with lifetime achievement, member of the year, the outstanding woman in construction award, YCL excellence in construction and a safety award.
Most nominated projects are located in the Lower Mainland, but entries were also received for projects in Bowen Island, Oliver, Powell River and Prince George.
“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.
“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.
