As one of three finalists for the award, Flintstones Masonry & Home Improvements Ltd. was selected for the award based on functional and unique design features, selection and placement of design features and materials, as well as how climatic conditions, exposure and limitations were addressed. Entries were judged by a distinguished panel of highly qualified British Columbia judges external to Vancouver Island, selected for their individual expertise.
