Award Criteria

  1. Architectural Excellence
    The 2017 MBI award winning ADI “Stationwest” project was specifically designed with future re-use in mind. This impressive structure has now been fit-out for the second time to suit its new location, and has a completely different look and feel from the first location. The building was dismantled from its original location and moved across the city to a new home at Valera Rd, all taking place with a few weeks in preparation for the GRAND OPENING of a new high rise build location The building has been placed on a below grade foundation, to give it easy accessibility. A change of signage, change of paint, and flooring, along with new presentation models and décor create a new and unique experience for this re-purposed sales center, to reflect the new condominium design that was in development.
  2. Technical Innovation & Sustainability
    The building was originally designed for it’s first location with maximum flexibility in mind, offering clear spans with post and beam construction. It is constructed with a structural steel frame and includes a concrete floor to achieve a permanent feel upon entry. The large expanse of glass, black aluminum frames and unique ceiling finishes offer an impressive grand appearance. Behind the architectural features, this building was well designed structurally to allow it to be easily split, picked up by crane, loaded to truck and set up at a new location.
  3. Cost Effectiveness
    ADI being a builder themselves, very well understand the cost advantage of time savings. By having their new sales center simply renovated from an existing one that had already gone through the permitting and approval process, time was shortened further on project # 2. The building was partially renovated while sitting on its original location while the site development/foundation permits were underway for the next location. The three-section structure was again, set onto pier foundations in one day, and final newly modified interior finishes were completed in only 10 days. The center was furnished, signs installed and décor was completed for a successful opening which resulted in record crowds again, with extensive media coverage.
  4. Project History
    This project was initially built by NRB for ADI’s “Stationwest” development site in West Burlington, and was a multiple MBI award winner in 2017! As that development site was completed and the condominiums were sold out, ADI repurposed the building for use at the next development site across the city. The interior walls remained in tact, however some changes in paint colour, fitments and fixtures and décor completely re-vamped the appearance of this building to suit the new development.
