Two projects get design-build awards
The Ottawa-based Canadian Design-Build Institute (CDBI) has recognized excellence in Canada’s design-build industry in its second annual awards program.
Awards were presented for two projects in Montreal and Toronto during the institute’s 2004 national design-build conference in Edmonton.
“Award recipients demonstrate the highest standards and principles in the design-build industry,” the institute said in a statement.
Awards were judged according to four criteria:
• Success achieved in attaining the owner/user’s project goals.
• Success in implementing design-build best practices.
• The design team’s use of innovation.
• Design quality of the project.
An award of excellence was presented for the renovation and expansion of the Montreal Convention Centre.
The project was undertaken by a team led by Genivar Inc., Aecon Group Inc., and Divco Ltd. and which included Tetreault Dubuc Saia Architects. Owner is the Quebec Real Estate Corp.
An honourable mention was given for the Ricoh Coliseum at Exhibition Place in Toronto. The team, led by PCL Constructors Canada Inc., included Brisbin Brook Beynon Architects, Parkin Architects Ltd., Yolles, The Mitchell Partnership Inc., and Mulvey & Banani International Inc.
The project was undertaken on behalf of the owners/developers, the city of Toronto, the board of governors of Exhibition Place and Borealis.
Established in 1998, the CDBI is the national voice of Canadian designbuild practitioners.
The institute is a special committee of the Canadian Construction Association.
