This is the new home of Cool Aid’s Shelter and Transitional Housing. It was designed with a colourful industrial architectural theme and with an interesting arrangement of forms. Such durable materials as masonry, Galvalume, Swiss Pearl, and coated steel create a colourful display. The design for this shelter addresses the resident’s need for safety and privacy, and provides services in an environment which contributes to their sense of dignity and self-worth. This project has been designed to LEED Gold standards.

Historically speaking

The Commercial Building Awards were started in 1991 by a group of REALTORS® who were concerned that commercial development within the Greater Victoria area was not receiving the recognition it deserved.

The Commercial Building Awards competition is recognized among architects, builders and developers and the real estate community as a prestigious event dedicated to the advancement of excellence in construction and design. Because of its success, the Victoria Commercial Building Awards program is now being emulated by various real estate boards throughout BC and across Canada.

The Commercial Division of the Victoria Real Estate Board is dedicated to advancement in quality developments and to encouraging a better environment within our community and is proud to sponsor this annual competition.
