EDMONTON — Nadine Metwali is the winner of this year’s Canadian Buildings National Student Scholarship, the PCL family of companies announced recently.
PCL’s Canadian Buildings sector offers an annual scholarship to a student who has exceeded expectations in their role, exhibits a passion for the construction industry and demonstrates the potential to become a future leader at PCL and in the community.
Metwali is an architectural engineering student at the University of Waterloo. She has worked in various roles at PCL and is currently a field co-ordinator on the BMO expansion centre project, a $305-million project, in Calgary.
Metwali was chosen out of more than 587 Canadian Buildings student placements in 2022 for best exemplifying the selection criteria. She received a $3,500 scholarship. Runner-up Ryan Drews (Edmonton Buildings) will receive $2,500, and other nominees, Craig Sutherland (Atlantic Canada) and Stephen Halas (B.C. region), will each receive $1,000 for an honourable mention.
The PCL Canadian Buildings student program was implemented in September 2009 to develop high-potential students who could become major contributors to the organization’s succession program at the entry level. As part of the program, an annual scholarship is awarded to one or more students who exceed expectations in their current roles, exhibit a passion for construction and demonstrate the potential to be future leaders at PCL.
