New Revelstoke Business and Visitor Information Centre wins award for excellence for design and construction

The Revelstoke Business and Visitor Information Center Building, built by VVI Construction, has won an Award of Excellence for Design and Construction at the Sixth Annual Southern Interior Construction Association Commercial Building Awards, held in Kelowna on Thursday, October 23rd, 2014.

This is the second year in a row that VVI Construction has won this prestigious award; having won for its completion of Mica Heli Ski Lodge last year in January 2013. Consequently, that project won the Judge’s Favorite award and received the Gold Excellence standard.

The Revelstoke Business and Visitor Information Center was a unique collaborative effort from VVI Construction, Revelstoke Land and Development, the City of Revelstoke, the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce, Community Futures Revelstoke, and the Columbia Basin Trust along with various local sub-trades and suppliers; all making this versatile building a commercial success.
