“We are honored to receive the prestigious Vancouver Regional Construction Association Gold Award for Excellence in Construction, said Pat Duggan, general manager for Balfour Beatty. “The whole team did a phenomenal job of building a world-class healing environment that will forever improve the lives of children and women in British Columbia.”
The project specifically won this award for the second phase of the BC Children’s and BC Women’s Hospital Redevelopment Project—the Teck Acute Care Centre. Completed in 2017, the Centre is designed to minimize the movement of patients, care providers, equipment and supplies to improve the patient experience and increase efficiency.
Each year, the VRCA recognizes the finest companies, projects and individuals in the construction industry with the Awards of Excellence. Three Silver Award winners are selected in 15 project categories for their use of innovative techniques, new materials and/or exceptional project management. On the night, one Silver Award winner from each category will be chosen as the Gold Award winner. Awards are granted based a variety of criteria including financial performance, project schedule and sustainable construction.
VCRA is the largest regional construction association in British Columbia, and the fifth largest in Canada. It represents union and non-union, general and trade contractors, manufacturers, suppliers and professionals that service the industrial, commercial and institutional construction industry throughout the Lower Mainland. As the industry’s business hub, VRCA provides the resources that the industry needs to be informed, productive, competitive and profitable over the long term.
We’re pleased to share this award with our partner, Ledcor!
