Canada Building Materials earns three awards

Canada Building Materials (CBM), which operates as part of St Marys Cement, was the recipient of three important awards, in recognition of Votorantim Cimentos' efforts to build long-term customer relationships and providing building materials to make new and innovative designs a reality. 

The company received the Material Development & Innovation Award for providing more than 150 cubic meters of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) used in the construction of the Ryerson University Student Learning Center, in Toronto. The specialized SCC met stringent requirements for numerous inclined columns, an ultra-light color and minimal surface voids, or "bug holes".  

CBM also earned The Sustainable Concrete Construction Award for its work in the Southcore Financial Centre in Toronto, on a new 'green', mixed-use office tower. The long-term performance of the project was a major consideration in selecting the supplier and the high-performance mix that helped to achieve the vision of the architect and the owner.

​Finally, CBM was recognized with the Institutional Building Award as part of a winning team responsible for constructing the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre, an award-winning facility that serves as a community center, athletic facility for the local university and training center for elite athletes. The center earned recognition for its utility and dynamic design, which allows for a thematic integration between architecture and landscape.
