Urban Development Institute (UDI) has been hosting the UDI Awards for Excellence every two years since 1984. The awards acknowledge completed development projects in the Lower Mainland and throughout British Columbia, and are the highest form of peer recognition in the province.

RJC Engineers (RJC) was excited to receive the news that Oxford Properties Group’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto was able to achieve Parksmart certification on two of their parkades. GBCI Canada recently announced the nation’s first two Parksmart certifications: Yorkdale Shopping Centre earned a Pioneer level for existing parking structures for its G Parkade, while Yorkdale’s newly constructed E Parkade east structure, earned a certified Parksmart Bronze. The two parkades are also the first two retail Parksmart certifications in the world.

The National Trust’s Awards honour contributions to community, identity and sense of place.
