Award Criteria

  1. Architectural Excellence

    This 10 module building is installed on a steel skeleton. The modular installation starts on top of a massive electrical distribution hub. And goes up 5 stories from there.

It holds the tool rooms, lunchrooms, locker rooms, washrooms and various facilities to support the work crews at the location.

  2. Technical Innovation & Sustainability

    The combination of the steel supporting structure with wooden modules is unique to our standard builds.

  3. Cost Effectiveness

    This was a cadillac build. Siding, finishes, ductwork this was a very complex build - we had to match the existing structures on site.
