Alberta Venture magazine, Merit Contractors Association and our sponsors – Alberta Construction Safety Association, Canadian Western Bank, and Lenmak Exterior Innovations Inc – are proud to announce the winners of the first annual Contractor of the Year Awards. These awards highlight the 65 billion dollar construction industry’s achievements by recognizing companies and individuals whose efforts stand out. Over 200 of the construction industry’s finest turned out to honour finalists and award winners at an exclusive awards gala on Thursday, April 28, 2011 at the Sutton Hotel in downtown Edmonton.
Nominees were judged in four categories and across various criteria, including safety programs, environmental practices, staff development opportunities and the diversity of their building projects. Nominations were received from all across the province and the diversity of services provided is a testament to the robust Alberta construction industry.
“The construction sector is one of the most significant economic drivers in Alberta,” says Ruth Kelly, publisher of Alberta Venture. “With technological, environmental and labour force issues arising, the construction industry has embraced innovation across the spectrum of its activities. Recognizing excellence inside the sector furthers Alberta Venture’s mandate to promote best business practices in the province.”
