Company’s Edmonton Buildings and Civil district marks a century of building in 2022.
PCL Construction is celebrating the centennial anniversary of its Edmonton Buildings and Civil district. The company has been building in Edmonton, Northern Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut for the past 100 years.
“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. “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.”
Over the past century, Edmonton Buildings 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, University of Alberta, Stollery Children’s Hospital, Edmonton International Airport, the ICE District and Rogers Place, and PCL’s first Edmonton project, the Edmonton Public Library, which it built in 1922.
“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,” says 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.”
Throughout 2022, Edmonton Buildings will celebrate its centennial and recognize its partnerships, people and communities with a public art installation and appreciation events.
