The Cloverdale Recreation Centre has been cited for an excellence in building award.

It's one of four commercial building awards the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board has awarded to City of Surrey projects.

The new recreation centre won the Award of Merit in the Community Institutional Category. The Surrey City Centre Library earned two awards – Judges' Choice, the highest honour, and Community Institutional. Kensington Prairie Community Centre won in the Restoration category.

Eleven awards in nine categories were presented.

Projects were evaluated on the following criteria: does the development complement or add to the surrounding properties or neighbourhood; is it esthetically pleasing; what construction materials were used; was it built in an environmentally sensitive manner; does it incorporate unique architectural features and how does the project compare to others in the same category.
