EDMONTON, ALTA. – PCL Construction is celebrating a century of building in Edmonton.
The company recently announced its Edmonton Buildings and Civil district has been constructing for 100 years in Edmonton, northern Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
“We are so proud of our history and the people and partnerships that have allowed us to play a significant part in building our communities,” says Jason Portas, vice-president and district manager, Edmonton Buildings and Civil in a statement. “PCL’s legacy is our people. As we reflect on achieving 100 years in construction, we recognize the contributions our diverse teams have made to our company and our Edmonton community.”
During the past century, PCL has partnered on more than 4,800 construction projects, building some of the most significant infrastructure and other developments in the Alberta Capital Region, including West Edmonton Mall, the University of Alberta, Stollery Children’s Hospital, Edmonton International Airport, the ICE District and Rogers Place, and PCL’s first Edmonton project in 1922, the Edmonton Public Library.
“Looking back at all we have built over the last century, it is incredibly fulfilling for us to be such an essential part of Edmonton, northern Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut,” said PCL’s president and CEO Dave Filipchuk. “The rich history of PCL is intertwined with the rich history of this region, and our PCL family has always been passionate about where we live and how our work contributes to our communities. We look forward to continuing to build a better future, together.”
PCL noted beyond construction projects, the company has worked to give back to the region through charity and community involvement.
“Giving back to the community is central to PCL’s values-driven culture,” said the company. “As PCL looks ahead to the next 100 years, this commitment will continue to drive the district and its communities forward.”
The company is planning to celebrate its centennial throughout 2022.
