There are an estimated 100, 000 Canadians living with Multiple Sclerosis , the highest rate in the world. The disease affects each individual differently and is quite unpredictable, affecting vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. There is no cure for MS however research is learning more about causes and prevention.
Status is proud to have contributed to this great cause.
This project is the first aquarium in North America to achieve LEED Gold certification and one of the first certified completed projects in BC.

The state of the art technology and the complexity of the electrical systems provided a welcome challenge to our superb team of journeymen and apprentices who enjoyed participating in cutting edge construction with an environmental and energy-sensitive priority.

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that we announce the passing of Alex Roberts, Status Electrical's Senior Estimator. Alex passed away at his home on Sunday May 24th with his family around him. Alex had been battling cancer for over two years.
Alex has been with Status since February of 1998, actively running our estimating department through to the spring of 2009 when he was no longer well enough to remain in the position. Alex set a high standard of work ethics and will be remembered for his leadership, friendship, sense of humour and most of all his dedication.
