April 18, 2012 by Andrew Snook
The PCL family of companies is expanding in Alberta.
The contracting firm recently announced plans to expand its industrial headquarters in
Nisku, Alta., with a new $10-million facility.
PCL president and COO Heavy Industrial, Peter Stalenhoef stated that continued growth in the Alberta economy, particularly in the oil sands, played a factor in the expansion, since it is generating billions of dollars of work and thousands of jobs for the construction industry.
The Nisku expansion will include a two-storey, 35,000-sq.-ft. office building that will replace more than 30 work trailers on site. Some of the facility’s key features include: lunchroom facilities, training and meeting spaces.
The Nisku module facilities have produced more than 2,000 modules for a variety of owners over its 15 years of operation.
PCL is currently working on three large module projects – scheduled for completion between September 2012 and November 2013 – that will create a total of 424 modules.
PCL also acquired a 16-hectare (40 acre) site in east Edmonton for additional capacity and flexibility for current and future projects.
The company currently employs more than 850 people at its two Nisku module yards and fabrication facilities, with that number expected to jump to 1,000 people in the summer of 2012.
