Nanaimo projects cited for excellence in building awards

Several projects score with judges in 2017 VIREB Commercial Building Awards.

Nanaimo construction projects received nods from the judges for excellence at the 11th annual Vancouver Island Real Estate Board Commercial Building Awards.

The awards presentations were held at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre on Thursday, when winners were announced from a record 54 finalists entered in 12 categories.

The awards celebrate the best in commercial, community and industrial buildings on Vancouver north of the Malahat. Winners are selected for 12 categories by a team of independent judges.

The 2017 Judge’s Choice Award winner for Best Overall Entry was the St. Paul’s Centre for Ministry in Nanaimo.

The Multi-Family Apartment award was presented for a project at 130 Vancouver Ave, and Nanaimo’s Forest Glen Manor won the Multi-Family Renovation award of excellence.

R.W. (Bob) Wall Ltd. was the general contractor for two Nanaimo projects that won awards of excellence: Ariyah Place in the office category and Eden Gardens in the seniors category.
