Modularization of heavy industrial construction reduces costs and increases schedule certainty, and allows the project team to push ahead with engineering work while other activities proceed concurrently at the construction site.
PCL’s heavy industrial modular work is performed in a controlled environment, employing lean manufacturing principles and the latest welding technologies.
The combined capacity (on 115 acres) of PCL’s three Canadian module assembly facilities, each located adjacent to Alberta’s high-load transportation corridor, is among the highest in Canada. Right next door, PCL operates one of Canada’s largest and most technologically advanced pipe fabrication facilities on a 13.3-acre site in Nisku, offering a total of 125,000 square feet of indoor work space.
In the United States, PCL’s 25-acre fabrication and module assembly yard is a leading facility of its type in California. The fully fenced and secured yard contains two 12,500-square-foot covered fabrication bays. Its design accommodates heavy-haul transporter traffic.
