Diana Robertson of Placemaker Marketing, John Friswell of CCI Renovations, architect Richard Kadulski, Chris Hartman, CEO of the Tsawwassen First Nations Economic Development Corporation and MJ Whitemarsh, CEO of CHBA BC, drew on their experience and expertise to adjudicate each entry in its category.
The five judges spent a full day reviewing the entries and making their assessments.
Each judge gave their completed ballot to the awards monitor, a representative from KPMG, who recorded each judge’s vote.
“Each finalist has had to meet or exceed a high standard of excellence in order to be deemed worthy of an award,” said Patsy Bourassa, CHBA-Central Interior's executive officer.
