West Block awarded RAIC Certificate of Merit
The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada has awarded the West Block its 2019 Certificate of Merit for Innovation in Architecture. This is the latest in a series of awards dating back to 1997; the project has won awards all along its many phases over the past two decades and will surely bring home a few more. Congratulations to all!
Comments from the jury:
“Pulling off a successful project of that size with so many different levels of complexities definitely required imaginative and innovative management practices from its leaders.”
“The very stringent program requirements from the heritage point of view while stabilizing the structure meant that this was not a run-of-the-mill project.”
