Benefits for Subtrades

A construction project is a balancing act of coordinating mechanical, electrical, and other subcontractors work packages, in a project team environment. PCL works closely with subcontractors early in the construction life cycle to understand how they intend to perform their work, and to develop construction execution plans that emphasize team success. PCL subcontractors and partners benefit from our commitment to:

Excellence in Delivery


PCL is a safety leader and has a goal of zero incidents on every project. Everyone works safe on a PCL jobsite. And everyone goes home safe. Subcontractors benefit from PCL’s understanding of, and commitment to, safety management.


Subcontractors benefit from PCL’s commitment to a district quality management program. PCL employees and subcontractors benefit from a thorough knowledge of the drawings, specifications, codes, testing procedures, and applicable standards. Everyone works together using the quality management system to achieve a superior end product.


On many projects, PCL and subcontractors work together to develop 3D models of specific work, and every PCL project has access to software to combine these models to perform clash detection. Starting the coordination process early allows many issues to be resolved before subcontractors encounter them in the field.

EXCELLENCE IN partnership


At PCL, we understand that diversity drives innovation and we value the different experiences, perspectives, and expertise brought by our subcontractors and partners. Company-wide, we seek opportunities to engage small and diverse subcontractors on our projects, and ensure their success through mentorship, support, and sharing best practices.


Whether it is temporary power, lighting, labor and material logistics, hoisting, overall site logistics, or scheduling, every PCL project is planned and documented with subcontractor input, when possible, prior to subcontractor tendering. This reduces surprises for subcontractors. Good team planning initiates a project community that is highly successful.


PCL provides software for subcontractor collaboration on submittals, RFI, and document control utilizing technology to enable a more efficient workflow for delivery of construction.
