Honours for CEI

Vancouver-based CEI Architecture has been recognized by the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, in its inaugural “Office Building of the Future” Design Competition. The NAIOP competition invited its 15,000 member architectural firms to share a vision for office building design and operations in the year 2020, utilization trends, sustainability and new building technologiesand including conceptual site plans and sketches, cost estimates and other broad design generalities. The competition jury considered such things as architectural philosophy, solving of design challenges and ability to “sell” the vision. The CEI concept, submitted in partnership with Reed Jones Christoffersen Consulting Engineers, Rocky Point Engineering, 2020 Engineering and SSA Quantity Surveyors Ltd., received an Honourable Mention, the only Canadian firm to be so recognized. It explored the idea of a 40-storey office building constructed from wood, including sustainability strategies to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
