Last week at The Buildings Show in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre—an industry event that brings together a number of design, architecture, and construction expos under one roof—at the Concrete Ontario event hosted by the Ready Mixed Concrete Association of Ontario, their annual awards wee handed out. The awards recognize projects across the province that make use of concrete as a building and design medium, ranging from high-profile public buildings to specialty concrete products and applications.

The big winner of the event was the TTC's York University Subway Station, part of the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE) set to open shortly on December 17th. The Foster + Partners and Arup Canada-designed station was the recipient of three out of the ten awards handed out on Wednesday, lauded for its design and complex structural engineering. The winners of all ten awards are listed below:
