Q: I’ve submitted my project – what’s next?
A: The judges will review all the project submissions after April 10. If the committee believes a site visit is deemed beneficial for the final decision, you will be contacted to schedule a site visit. Otherwise, please be prepared to present your project at the VRCA Office (Vancouver location). Companies will be notified after May 12, 2017 for an appointment.
Q: Won’t a PowerPoint presentation limit my chances of winning, compared to a site visit experience?

A: Prior to the event, you will be listed in our press releases and featured in the Construction Business Magazine.
Q: On the Trade Contractor and Manufacturer/Supplier project entry forms, which amount should be entered in the ‘Final Contract Price’?
A: Please enter the value of your contract portion of the project, not the value of the project as a whole.
Q: I am a Trade Contractor (or Manufacturer/Supplier) who has been nominated by a General Contractor – what are my responsibilities?
A: Please prepare a 1 page fact sheet outlining your contributions to the project. Please read the ‘Criteria and Conditions’ document under the ‘Entry Forms’ tab for a better understanding of what information the judges are looking for. Please make sure to have this document ready and have multiple photocopies with you at the time of your project presentation.
