EDMONTON, AB (July 9, 2013) – The PCL family of companies is constructing a new building on its campus, designed to be a model project showcasing several
innovative and environmentally-conscious building techniques.
“PCL is always looking to implement innovative building solutions and add value to the projects we build for our clients,” said Rob Holmberg, Executive Vice President of Canadian Buildings. “Now we are using the opportunity of constructing our own building to incorporate innovative techniques that we can apply to future projects we build for others.”
The $20 million development will utilize Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies, 3-D print-outs of the build components, and be virtually paperless, taking advantage of 3-D blueprints and plans accessible on wireless devices.
The new building will be a three-story, LEED-certified structure with a glass and concrete exterior located on the north east corner of the PCL campus. The building will feature approximately 44,000 square feet of office space, workstations, and meeting rooms to meet the needs of the company’s growth and expansion.
The new building will take the place of the first building constructed on the PCL campus over nearly 50 years ago. It is the third addition to PCL’s North American Headquarters in the past five years.
Demolition of the old building began today. The project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2014.
