Watch Now 30th Annual Commercial Building Awards Winners Presentation

Pacific Centre Family Services Association

The Pacific Centre Family Services Association’s key design goal was to create a welcoming and safe environment for clients. Inside there are private easy-to-find entries and clear wayfinding and multi-directional exits. Its two floors are connected by a bridge over a courtyard to reduce the building’s mass and provide a residential appearance.

On the outside, the wood frame building has expansive gable roofs that recall both First Nations longhouses and 20th century bungalows. Cedar siding and exposed fir timbers were used to celebrate the local tradition of craftsmanship and extensive landscaping helps create an atmosphere of safety, beauty and tranquility.

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.
