Awarded annually to an outstanding graduate student pursuing research in the field of recycling building construction materials with preference being given to students expressing an interest in applicable glass and glazing components. This award was endowed in 2006 by VANBOTS, a division of Carillion Construction Inc. and Ferguson-Neudorf Glass Incorporated. It results from work performed on the Bank of Canada during the Exterior Glazing System Remediation Project which involved a large amount of glass and other building fenestration material being removed without a suitable recycling application available for these removed materials.
