Construction Month BC: 4 VICA Members Receive Construction Leadership Awards
In case you haven't heard, April was declared Construction and Skilled Trades month in British Columbia.
For the entire month, across the province, the 225,000 British Columbians who work in the skilled trades, and the 24,000 employers who support them were celebrated. In honour of this, we decided to recognize four VICA members for their leadership in the industry.
At the end of March, we made a call-out for award nominations. Shortly after, the winners were chosen. The four small-to-medium sized member companies that were recognized at the 2018 Vancouver Island Construction Conference are:
- Yosef Suna, Project Manager at Knappett Industries, is the recipient of our “VICA Ambassador Award” – awarded to an individual who, through professional development and volunteerism, has shown leadership within his organization and the local community.
- DenMar Electric is the recipient of our “Tomorrow’s Leader” Award for demonstrating an investment in their staff through training and education, participation at industry events, and involvement in community initiatives. Their actions today are shaping tomorrow’s leaders.
- Lewis Sheet Metal is the recipient of our “Industry Innovators” Award for their progressive practices — they’ve been using BIM since 2013 and have recently adopted LEAN for efficiency as their company grows. They’re paving the way for HVAC contractors when it comes to embracing new technology.
- Nelson Roofing & Sheet Metal Ltd. is the recipient of our “Community-Minded” Award for demonstrating a dedication to supporting the construction industry, as well as their local community, through sponsorship of events and donations of time and money to local non-profits.
