Award winners, one-stop clinic and HarbourCats pop-up in spotlight

Several area firms have been recognized recently for business excellence.

Saanich-based CMS Focus Management Services Ltd. won the award for Excellence in Construction Management and Supervision at last week’s Deputy Minister’s Consulting Engineers Awards, for its work on the 202nd Street Rapid Transit Project in Langley.

The structure known simply by its address, 947 Fort Street, has been certified LEED Gold by the Canada Green Building Council. Built by Trebizond Developments and Homewood Construction, it is the first downtown office building to achieve gold status.

And the Esquimalt branch of Nurse Next Door was named health company of the year at the 2013 Vancouver Island Business Excellence awards.
