Turner wins recognition at Vancouver Regional Construction Association's annual Awards of Excellence in Construction

October 23, 2016

Libby Rowe, project manager, and Amit Patel, business manager, recently garnered recognition from the Vancouver Regional Construction Association, or VRCA, as part of the Association’s annual Awards of Excellence in Construction. 

Libby accepted the Outstanding Woman in Construction Award, which recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution to the construction industry, as well as someone who acts as an ambassador for women in construction. 

“Since I joined Turner two years ago, my community involvement has been predominantly with Canadian Construction Women (CCW),” said Libby. “They’re a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for support, mentoring, networking, community involvement, learning and development. And one of their main reasons for existing is to attract and retain women in the industry and show them that a career in the building industry offers a world of opportunity—a very worthy mission and one I am proud to support.”

Libby joined CCW as a programs committee member in 2009 and soon she became programs director, then vice president, before she moved into the president role. She is currently active as a past president of this organization, and continues to balance her work with CCW, Turner, and her two children.

Amit accepted the U40 Excellence in Construction Award, which recognizes an individual under 40 who has made a significant contribution in the workplace, on a project, or in the community through volunteer work, and has demonstrated leadership potential and a commitment to the advancement of the construction industry.

After joining Turner’s Seattle office in 2005, Amit served as a project coordinator, quickly demonstrating his instinct for leadership and becoming a project manager. “I’ve had the opportunity to be a founding member and leader for the Western region of Canadian Turner Construction Company,” said Amit. “It has been an honor to work as part of a team and grow our part of the business from zero market share to more than $58 million in 2015 – a number that has continued to grow, coming to $75 million already this year.” That growth attracted the notice of BC Business Magazine, who ranked Turner among their Top 20 Construction Management firms in British Columbia for 2015.
