Industry Awards of Excellence Wrap Up 2022

These awards recognize industrial, commercial, and institutional projects within the southern interior of BC. In addition to the project awards, finalists are also recognized in several Leadership Awards categories. 

For the 2020/2021 year, 26 finalists were selected in the Building Awards and Leadership Awards categories. Building Awards categories recognize a variety of project types; new for this year is the Trade Excellence category which permits Trade Contractors to nominate their work on a project, rather than the project overall. This allows the Trade Excellence Award to recognize the many unique details that make up construction projects as a whole.

All of the finalists were recognized at the Awards dinner, where the winners were presented with a trophy. In addition to the Building and Leadership Award categories, SICA honoured members celebrating milestones with the organization; members’ milestones are recognized for every 5 years of membership with SICA. There was a presentation made for the Owner Consultant Award, this award recognizes the construction owners and or consultants that have played an active role in supporting the industry. Finally, the Howard Strong Industry Builder Award, which is the namesake award of the first President of SICA, was presented. This award is given to an individual who, through their actions over an extended period of time, contributed in a manner beyond the expectation of daily business.

Every Child Matters - Indigenous History Month

I write to you heavy with emotions regarding the recent discovery at the Kamloops residential school. This is a long-awaited confirmation of the cultural annihilation forced upon our indigenous communities. I feel the profound grief and anger of my ancestral lineage being of the Metis Nation, as well as a feeling of deep shame of being Canadian right now.

SICA training courses prove practical and meaningful to students

It’s no exaggeration to say the global economy has been paralyzed by the pandemic. Fortunately for many Canadians, the construction industry was one of the few beacons in an otherwise slow economy greatly inhibited by COVID-19. Of course, the many forms of construction activity couldn’t forge ahead frivolously – social distancing, rigorous cleaning protocols and an abundance of caution were the norm on work sites everywhere, and it’s clear these methods will continue in the months ahead.
