British Columbia’s seventh annual Construction and Skilled Trades Month aims to recognize excellence across the industry in two areas of priority: culture change, and leadership.

This year’s celebration highlights the importance of the industry’s mentors in shaping the new generation of construction workers, and marks five years of Builders Code culture training, policies and commitments, making construction a more inclusive career choice.

“Construction Month allows us to shine a bright light on the impact our industry has on the lives of British Columbians,” said Chris Atchison, president of the B.C. Construction Association (BCCA).

“92 per cent of construction owners are small businesses who employ fewer than 20 employees. Day after day, they deliver the important housing, institutional, commercial, industrial and infrastructure projects our province needs. They work hard, and they get the job done. We welcome this opportunity to give them the recognition and respect they deserve.”

Construction Month aims to celebrate the success of B.C.’s construction industry, and is an opportunity to celebrate the leadership of companies who inspire by example.

The Builders Code Champion Awards recognize four employers who are leading the way in advancing the culture of B.C.’s industrial, commercial, institutional and multi-unit residential housing construction industry.

The 2024 Builders Code Champions include the following.

Turner Construction Company in Vancouver is this year’s Workplace Culture Champion, Houle Electric in Victoria is the Recruiting, Hiring and Retention Champion, CGI Constructors in Victoria/Vancouver is the Recruiting, Hiring and Retention Champion and EllisDon in Vancouver is the Community Champion.

The Leadership Awards are an annual acknowledgement of contributions by B.C. construction companies, and highlight the legacy from which future generations can benefit. This year’s recipients were selected in partnership with B.C.’s Regional Construction Associations: the Northern Regional Construction Association (NRCA), the Southern Interior Construction Association (SICA), the Vancouver Island Construction Association (VICA) and the Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA).

The 2024 Leadership Award winners are Westcana Electric Ltd. in Prince George, Acres Enterprises in Kamloops, Heritage Masonry in Victoria and Pitt Meadows Plumbing & Mechanical Systems Ltd. in Maple Ridge.

The Leadership Awards are sponsored by LNG Canada, BCCA, and the National Construction Council, as Title and Platinum Sponsors of Construction Month 2024.
