Defence Construction Canada Comox accepts 2017 Public Procurement Award

The Defence Construction Canada Comox procurement team recently accepted a 2017 Best of Public Procurement Award from the BC Construction Association.

"Achieving excellence in construction procurement is a difficult task, and it’s near impossible to get everything done perfectly,” says Warren Perks, VP of Industry Standards for BCCA. “However these owners worked hard to achieve high standards of fairness and transparency on their projects, and we felt they should be recognized.”

Bernie Arthurs, Coordinator of Contract Services, is shown below between BCCA President Chris Atchison and VICA CEO Rory Kulmala accepting the award on behalf of his team — some of whom are shown in the right photo. Congratulations and keep up the great work!
