Britco wins top industry award

Britco's Agassiz office winds for Permanent Modular Office at Modular Building Institute Awards

Britco’s Agassiz office building won a prestigious award at the recent Modular Building Institute Awards.

The beautifully-designed office earned top honours in the Permanent Modular Office category at the awards night, held in Las Vegas March 16. The office building, which was in full operation by last August, features vaulted boardroom ceilings and modern finishes as well as expanded office space for the growing company. The six modules were built right at the Agassiz plant and was designed so it can be easily expanded as more space is needed.

Britco also won an award for a bank building in High Level, Alberta, recognized in the category of permanent Modular Retail or Hospitality.

“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 Modular Building Institute is a non-profit 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.

Britco is a Langley-based company, with modular construction facilities in Agassiz, Penticton and Edmonton as well as in the United States. Britco is one of the largest commercial modular construction companies in North America, providing temporary and permanent residential and commercial modular buildings. The company has had operations in Agassiz since 1988.

These two latest awards add to a long list of accomplishments for Britco, including best in show for the Whistler Athletes’ Village and best modular building in North America for the Chilliwack Olympic Legacy Housing. For more, see http://britco.com/about-us/company-awards
