BC Building Science sponsored the putting green at the 3rd annual PAMA Golf Tournament in support of the Children's Wish Foundation. We gave out some swag, and even got to give the putting green a go ourselves.
We took advantage of the beautiful end-of-summer weather and had our August staff meeting at the top of Dog Mountain.
BC Building Science teamed up with the Residences for Independent Living Society to replace the deck at their False Creek Residence.
The BC Building Science team had a great time as usual - both on the course and running a 'Beach Ball Water Gun Race' at the hole we sponsored.
Another successful company camping trip to Cultus Lake. Campfires, waterslides, sun tanning, swimming, games and good times. BC Building Science's annual camping trip is all about team bonding, relaxing and having fun together. Every year our team grows and we add more tents to our campsite.
Certified by the Passive House Institute in October 2017, the Okanagan College Daycare Centre provides 64 spaces for infants and toddlers, daycare for children ages 3-5, preschool programs and after school care.

It is the first Passive Certified Institutional Building in Canada, and was recently featured in the Passive House Monthly Newsletter.
