Constructors Canada Inc. (Ottawa) was recognized for excellence in the Special
Uses category for the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC)
Long-Term Accommodation project. The design of the facility incorporated not
only the physical building but also all the IT networks and infrastructure. A

wood veneer cut from old growth timber salvaged from the bottom of Georgian
Bay. PCL teamed with Plenary Group and WZMH Architects to complete the CSEC
project under a public-private partnership (P3) delivery
Constructors Westcoast Inc. (BC Region) received the Institutional category
award for the Surrey Pretrial Service Centre Expansion. The expansion more than

British Columbia. A major component of the renovation portion was the gradual
changeover to a new, state-of-the-art electronic security control system. To
improve the living and working environment and reduce costs over time, PCL

facility that by its nature contains minimal glazing. PCL teamed with Forum
Equity Partners and DGBK Architects to deliver the Surrey Pretrial Service
Centre as a P3 design-build-finance-maintain project.
