Canadian Modular Builder Receives MBI Honors
Langley, British Columbia-based Britco has been honored with four international awards at the Modular Building Institute (MBI)’s annual convention in Orlando, Florida, according to what MarketWatch tells MHProNews.com. The Canadian company, one of the largest manufacturers of commercial modular buildings in North America, supplied the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver with modular suites for athletes and officials in the Whistler Athletes Village. To fulfill its mandate for a social housing legacy after the games, the 300 rooms were disassembled and relocated to provide 156 permanent rooms in five separate communities for people with disabilities and at-risk youth and adults. The four awards were for the affordable housing projects, including one, the Judge’s Choice Award, for best modular building in North America. Britco’s modular Whistler Athlete’s Lodge received the same honor in 2010.
