Wood Works! Annual Wood Design Awards
Eight awards were given out February 12th at the annual Wood Works! gala. Out of 34 nominations, 16 member and sponsor names appeared in the illustrious group of candidates waiting to find out the winners. CAA member Sturgess Architecture took home the Jury’s Choice Award for the Montreal House project. RJC Engineers and PCL Construction, both CAA sponsors, were honoured with the Institutional Wood Design Award for Shane Homes YMCA at Rocky Ridge, Calgary Alberta with GEC Architecture.

Second annual Business Awards winners announced
All three jurors singled out two entries, judging them in almost the same order. Thus a tie has been declared this year.
One firm engaged the whole office in a project, not just the design team building the power of expanding design, energy and awareness into the community beyond their own walls.Their project and the business of it affected the whole city.
The other firm applied a business efficiency philosophy idea from manufacturing into everyday architectural practice. Lean thinking theory is innovative and, in one judge’s experience, quite challenging to apply in an authentic way. The jurors applauded the way that the firm tried to rethink one of the most essential business practices in architecture through the lens of Lean Thinking.
