January 28, 2013 - The Daily Commercial News Online
The General Contractors Association of Ottawa (GCAO) has recognized four projects that exemplify the association’s motto of “building a greater Ottawa” in its biennial awards program.

Awards, honouring projects completed in 2011 and 2012, were presented in two building categories. In addition, the Don Chutter Meritorious Achievement Award was also handed out. Plaques were presented to the winning firms at the association’s recent annual general meeting.

“All of them (the winning projects) were completed to the owners’ satisfaction and all were on time and on budget,” said former president Hubie Splinter. “Noteworthy, too, is that all qualified for, or are on track for a LEED Silver designation. One qualified for LEED Platinum.”...

The Don Chutter Meritorious Achievement Award was presented to EllisDon for the Algonquin Centre for Construction Excellence.

The facility, the largest of its kind in Ontario, is a showcase and teaching laboratory for best practices in sustainable construction. The centre provides a hub “to train and inspire” 2,500 full-time and 5,000 part-time construction, architecture and design students and others. Entries in this category are judged on their contributions to the enhanced quality of life in the community.
