Meridian Place & Memorial Square Receives Ontario General Contractors Association Award

The Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) is pleased to announce that the construction team behind the Meridian Place & Memorial Square project have been recognized for their outstanding work. On Friday, April 12th, Rutherford Contracting received the Ontario Builders Award from the Ontario General Contractors Association in front of a crowd of 700.

The OGCA’s Ontario Builders Awards were presented at the OGCA Construction Symposium and are celebrated every second year to honour the projects and the OGCA members who have achieved construction excellence. The Meridian Place & Memorial Square project is the largest public-private partnership project in the history of downtown Barrie and it came to its completion in June of 2018. The multi-award-winning space saw roughly 34,000 visits in its first six months and will continue to be celebrated as a season full of exciting events and active programming approaches.

The Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) and the City of Barrie are proud to be working partners and would like to congratulate Rutherford Contracting for this incredible achievement. Their outstanding work on the Meridian Place & Memorial Square project deserves to be recognized and the Ontario Builders Award does just that.
