2018 VIREB Commercial Building Awards On behalf of the Commercial Division of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB), welcome to the Eleventh Annual Commercial Building Awards, for projects completed in 2017. Congratulations to all finalists and all of those nominated. The Commercial Division of VIREB, now into its 13th year, is dedicated to the advancement of excellence in commercial development to encourage a better environment within our community. Following the great successes of our first 10 Commercial Building Awards, VIREB’s Commercial Division committed once again to continuing the gala celebration, which really is an excellent way to recognize and honour the best in commercial buildings north of the Malahat on Vancouver Island.

John Cooper

Chair, Commercial Building Awards

Special thanks to Gold sponsors: Re/MAX Commercial, MNP LLP and Coastal Community Credit Union; and Category sponsors Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), Freedom Financial, NAI Commercial, Yellow Sheet Construction Review, Herold Engineering, Colliers International, Invest Comox Valley, Canadian Western Bank, Harris Auto Group/Nanaimo Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Ltd. and the Vancouver Island Conference Centre. Black Press is the Media Sponsor. Also, a special thank you to Grieg Seafoods for supplying this event with appetizers, and to Business Examiner Vancouver Island for coordinating the event. Once again, the interest in our Commercial Building Awards has been very strong. We received a record number of nominations from all VIREB zones, including the Cowichan Valley, Nanaimo, Parksville, Hornby Island, Coombs, Port Alberni, Tofino, Ucluelet, Port Hardy, Ladysmith, Qualicum Beach,the Comox Valley and Campbell River. This year, the number of finalists being judged was 54! To be eligible for nomination, an investment, commercial, multi-family or industrial building, development or renovation project had to have been completed between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017. The challenge of naming the award winners went to our team of independent judges, selected from the professional and development industries. They actually traveled to the various communities to see the projects first-hand. The criteria required a building or renovation project to complement the surrounding properties and area, be esthetically pleasing, include unique architectural features, and answer a specific development need within the community. The level of finish and choice in construction materials was also a determining factor, as was any environmentally friendly or green elements for possible consideration. We are very excited about the excellent quality of development underway all over Vancouver Island. Tonight, we are proud to showcase such excellence!

To do this, they kept the building low with a flat room. Their design used acute building angles to create a 12 foot ships prow overhang, turning a typically boring flat roof into the main building feature. The end result, was a building that grabs attention with the beautiful yellow cedar ships prow overhang but fits well by having a low profile on the steep uphill side of the entrance road into Tofino.

The new expanded DQ location complete with an outdoor patio and new drive thru provides additional services to the community at large and builds on the development that is happening in Campbell River.
