Britco wins two MBI awards
April 9, 2015 - Britco took home two awards at the Modular Building Institute (MBI) Awards held in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 16th.
The expansion of the office space at Britco’s Agassiz modular construction facility won them top honors in the category of Permanent Modular Office. Designed to be easily expanded as space is needed, the office building features vaulted boardroom ceilings and modern finishes.
Recognized in the category of Permanent Modular Retail or Hospitality, Britco’s Bank of Montreal branch in High Level, Alberta offers customers in this remote community access to full-service banking, including a bank vault, private offices, an ATM and a large banking hall.
“These projects truly show the innovation and flexibility that modular construction offers,” said Mike Ridley, President of Britco. “We’re very pleased that the Modular Building Institute recognized the hard work of Britco’s design and construction teams.”
The MBI is the trade association representing companies in Canada, the United States and 14 other countries involved in the construction and distribution of commercial modular buildings.
Entries were reviewed by an impartial panel of industry and non-industry construction and code experts, architects and engineers, and marketing professionals. Building entries were judged on architectural excellence, technical innovation and sustainability, cost effectiveness, energy efficiency and calendar days to complete.
