In 2016, ACEC-BC introduced the Client of the Year award to recognize clients whose people and practices support strong partnership between client and consultant. Clients selected for this award encourage positive collaboration with consulting engineering companies through effective communication, fair and transparent processes, and respectful working conditions.
Partnership is the cornerstone of excellence in consulting engineering practice, and this award gives our members the opportunity to show our appreciation to select clients who go above and beyond to build community and partnership with our industry.
In selecting the City of Burnaby, the Award judges considered their procurement approach incorporating pre-qualification and feedback, their willingness to collaborate and share risk, and the City’s progressive approach to consultant relationships.
