Watch Now 30th Annual Commercial Building Awards Winners Presentation

Verdier House

Built in 1911 and designated of Heritage Importance in 2015, the house was converted into eight rental units after relocating the building to the opposite side of the property and adding a basement. The building was brought up to code with seismic updates while preserving architectural elements and heritage character. The original stone cladding was taken down and cataloged, the stained glass and wood windows were restored and then the stone was re-installed. Each unit is HRV energy efficient.

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.
