Award Criteria

  1. Architectural Excellence
    To accommodate staff, the client was looking for a workspace solution that would become the new primary office environment for the organization. A traditional site-built structure was not an option for several reasons, including the site’s geotechnical constraints and the fact that the high-traffic nature of the business operation would not permit ongoing onsite construction activity. However, the client also wanted an environment that offered more character than the typical “trailer” feeling. The modular solution provided has a very functional exterior, but the interior has the fit and finish that truly meets their needs: modern lighting, Gyproc walls, custom flooring and lots of natural light coming in from the exterior windows.
  2. Technical Innovation & Sustainability
    Due to site constraints, this building was designed and manufactured to be a stand-alone two-storey building, complete with all features that you would find in a comfortable office environment: paint Gyproc walls, t-bar ceiling, rooftop HVAC units, high-quality doors/hardware and custom flooring.
  3. Cost Effectiveness
    This modular building was the appropriate solution for the owner due to the challenges of having a permanent foundation placed on this site and the requirement for this building to be able to be relocated to a new location in the future. Part of the cost-effectiveness came from using many standard pre-finished features alongside the custom features completed on site.
