Special Awards


Royal Jubilee Patient Care Centre


A $285 million hospital delivered on time and on budget, the Patient Care Centre was the largest institutional project ever built in the CRD (as at May 31, 2012). It is a 500 bed, state of the art inpatient facility located at Royal Jubilee Hospital. The building won the 2010 Best International Project Award by PFI Magazine and leads north America in the area of evidence based design. Built to LEED Gold Standards.

Olympic Vista Apartments


This project provides supported housing for persons who are homeless or homeless-at-risk. Supported by the local community and neighbourhood association, this project re-used 2010 Olympic Village housing with innovative construction combining modular units and conventional wood frame construction. The design is complementary to the existing neighbourhood and consistent with the design guidelines for redevelopment of the former Mount View School site.

The Atrium


Establishing a mid-rise green building as a viable form for a downtown office building; The Atrium gives weight to urban fit, sustainability, and occupant well-being as well as to profitability. Turning an entrance lobby into both an environmental control strategy that saves energy and a semi-public urban room is helping to revitalize an urban district. This project has pursued LEED Gold Certification in part through the use of passive energy saving and daylight strategies, made possible by the incorporation of a 7-storey internal atrium.

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.
