Surrey's City Centre Library

The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board has awarded the City of Surrey with four commercial building awards.

The Board presented 11 awards in nine categories with the highest honour, the Judges’ Choice Award, going to the Surrey City Centre Library.  The library won a second award in the Community Institutional category.

“Surrey’s library is a spectacular building. Our judges recognized that it will become an iconic piece of architecture in our region because it fulfills the needs and aspirations of its users and the surrounding community,” said Dennis Germyn, Chair of FVREB’s Commercial Executive Council. “And that’s what these awards are dedicated to, recognizing innovation, talent and hard work from professionals committed to building better communities.”

Kensington Prairie Community Centre won in the Restoration category, and the Cloverdale Recreation Centre won the Award of Merit in the Community Institutional category.

The projects were evaluated on the following criteria:

· Does the development complement or add to the surrounding properties and neighbourhood?

· Is it esthetically pleasing?

· What construction materials were used in the overall design?

· Was it built in an environmentally sensitive manner?

· Does it incorporate any unique architectural features?

· How does this project compare to others in the same category?
