VANCOUVER, British Columbia – The PCL family of companies is proud to announce that the BC Place redevelopment project has been recognized as “Project of the Year” at the Stadium Business Awards held in Turin, Italy, earlier this month.
The Project of The Year Award is presented to an expansion, modernization, or major capital enhancement of an existing sporting venue that has delivered on all its project goals and more.
“It was a major renovation project completed in a busy urban environment under strict time constraints,” said Sean Brock, PCL Vancouver’s vice president and district manager. “The fact that we were able to deliver a product that meets the needs of our client and has achieved international recognition is a source of pride for our team.”
The revamped BC Place reopened in September 2011 after completing a major revitalization that included the installation of the largest cable-supported retractable roof of its kind in the world. 
The project transformed the 55,000-seat venue and is designed and engineered for Vancouver’s climate, following rigorous engineering and architectural studies.
The project has also been featured on the covers of international stadia magazines Pa​nStadia and Stadia Magazine.
