CARE Awards a Celebration of People

Canada’s leaders in sustainable West Coast design and construction recently showcased their projects at the 2015 CARE Awards.

 “Hawks Nest” by KB Design and Jason Powell Construction was the big winner capturing 5 Gold CARE Awards including Project of the Year – Single Family.

 Winning Project of the Year – Multi-Family was “Retirement Community in Campbell River” by Denford Construction Management Ltd, a multiple Gold winner.

 The People’s Choice Award went to “Moderne” by Urban Core Ventures, a multiple Gold winner also receiving the Award for Creating Excellence in Housing Affordability for “Latitude Living” a multi-family project created through a public/private partnership.

The event is as much about people as the projects.
