Raising a Glass to Blue Grouse Winery
Kinetic is the proud contractor of four of the finalist projects at the Ninth Annual Vancouver Island Real Estate Board’s Commercial Building Awards ceremony, held April 21, 2016 in Nanaimo, where Blue Grouse Winery was named the “Judges’ Choice- Best Overall Entry” and also won the “Award of Excellence” in the hospitality category at the event, which featured 40 buildings as finalists in 12 categories at the sold-out gala event.
Blue Grouse Winery in Duncan was a renovation and addition project Kinetic completed in May 2015. The project added one level and a mezzanine (6,288sf) to the existing 3,239sf ICF winery and the system in the winery was also upgraded and space was provided for a new tasting room and retail area. The lower level was expanded and remained the working part of the winery.
The other finalist projects featured were Bill Howich Chrysler, Comox Valley RV Centre, Metro Liquor Discovery Harbour Campbell River who all received honorable mention at the event.
More than 70 projects were eligible this year for the awards, which celebrate the best in commercial, community and industrial buildings north of the Malahat on Vancouver Island.
We’ll raise a glass to that!
