MAPLE RIDGEPitt Meadows Plumbing & Mechanical Systems Ltd. of Maple Ridge has earned a Leadership Award from the B.C. Construction Association at the start of the 7th Annual Construction and Skilled Trades Month in Victoria.

The Leadership Awards are an annual acknowledgement of outstanding contributions by BC construction companies, highlighting the important legacy from which future generations can benefit.

“Construction Month allows us to shine a bright light on the impact our industry has on the lives of British Columbians,” says Chris Atchison, President of the BCCA. “92% of construction owners are small businesses who employ fewer than 20 employees. Day after day, they deliver the important housing, institutional, commercial, industrial and infrastructure projects our province needs. They work hard, and they get the job done. We welcome this opportunity to give them the recognition and respect they deserve.”

The month recognizes excellence across the industry in two areas of priority: culture change, and leadership. This year’s celebration highlights the importance of the industry’s mentors in shaping the new generation of construction workers, and marks five years of Builders Code culture training, policies and commitments, making construction a more welcoming and inclusive career choice.

The other Leadership Award recipients are Westcana Electric Ltd. of Prince George, Acres Enterprises of Kamloops and Heritage Masonry of Victoria.

The Builders Code Champion Awards recognize four employers who are leading the way in advancing the culture of BC’s industrial, commercial, institutional and multi-unit residential housing construction industry. Recruiting and retaining a diverse range of talent is critical to alleviating BC’s construction workforce shortage. By exemplifying Builders Code principles in their workplace culture, these BC companies have positioned themselves as employers of choice.

Houle Electric and CGI Constructors of Victoria were named the 2024 Builders Code Champions in Recruiting, Hiring and Retention, with the other Champions being Turner Construction Company of Vancouver as Workplace Culture Champion; and EllisDon of Vancouver as Community Champion.

BCCA is a non-partisan, non-profit organization working with four Regional Construction Associations to serve more than 10,000 employers in the province’s industrial, commercial, institutional, and residential multi-unit (ICIR) construction industry.
