KELOWNA - The Kelowna Yacht Club was honoured with both an excellence award and the judges’ choice for overall best entry at the 2015 Southern Interior Construction Association Commercial Building Award, bringing the award total to four for the newly constructed clubhouse.

“Our architects and builders succeeded to bring to life our vision to be a premier Canadian yacht club, and our members should be congratulated for their long-term vision and commitment to achieve the construction of this showcase facility along Kelowna’s waterfront,” says Vice Commodore Nancy Thompson.

The excellence award was presented in the hospitality category. Lead contractor for the project was Sawchuk Developments. Architect for the project was Meiklejohn Architects, whose work on the yacht club building also earned the honour of top architect in the province named by the Architectural Woodworks Manufacturers Association this October.

The clubhouse design offers simple and elegant use of distinctly nautical forms, materials and shapes. Public access to the building includes the main floor restaurant, operated by the award-winning Cactus Club Cafe, as well as extensive banquet, catering and meeting facilities.

“We’ve quickly become a destination for brides looking for a waterfront location for their special day,” says catering manager Lori Tarasoff. “We offer wedding menus and wines to suit nearly every taste and some brides have chosen the location to host their ceremonies as well.”
