Saskatoon, SK (February 24, 2017) - PCL Construction Management Inc. (Saskatoon) is pleased to be working for the Morguard Corporation on a redevelopment project located at The Centre Mall in Saskatoon.  This project has a silver lining involved for another local group.
 

Redeveloping the old Target space required demolition of interior finishes including the acoustic ceiling tile.  With the ceiling being relatively new and in great shape, PCL and Morguard wanted to avoid sending it for recycling, or at worst case sending it to the landfill.  By reaching out to the community, in search of organizations that could re-use the material, the team was able to connect with the Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools (GSCS).  GSCS was able to take all of the ceiling material which will be used in future renovations.  PCL and Morguard are excited to have partnered with GSCS and support its ceiling tile needs for many years to come!

Morguard is very happy with this proactive outcome, “We are delighted that with our partner, PCL Construction, we were able to work with the Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools to create the opportunity to reuse approximately 50,000 sq.ft of ceiling tile. This is a terrific and sustainable solution for The Centre mall and our community.  Congratulations to everyone involved!”

GSCS echoed Morguard’s statement, “Our school division is very thankful for the acoustic ceiling tile that Morguard Corporation and PCL Construction donated to our schools. With this donation, we will be able to replace the ceiling tile in approximately 55 of our classrooms!”

“Sustainable building is a huge focus for PCL Construction”, said PCL Saskatoon’s district manager, Aaron Yohnke. “We are proud to work towards protecting our environment, while at the same time making a positive impact in our community.”
