Dave Stroz is always up for a challenge. That’s what drew
him to PCL: the opportunity to work on interesting projects that present him
with new and unique challenges every day.
He started his PCL career in Toronto in 1995 and moved to
Ottawa three years later. Since relocating to the nation’s capital, Dave has
worked on several high-profile projects around the province, including the Living
Arts Centre, the Enercare
Centre, and the Ottawa
Convention Centre Redevelopment.
“With PCL I’ve built unique projects that come with the
opportunity to help preserve history,” says Dave. “I worked on the New
Canadian War Museum, which shows how our
military has helped shape Canada, and for the last seven years I’ve been at the
Block Rehabilitation project, a heritage building that houses our Parliament.”
It’s projects like these and his belief that you should love
what you do that’s kept Dave engaged for more than 23 years. He has an
ingrained passion for finishing what he’s started and believes that anyone with
the right attitude can succeed at PCL.
“I think we put together great teams. I always try to make my
project sites good places to work. It’s at the forefront of my mind all the
time—not just for PCL employees but for the trades and the client as well,”
adds Dave. “People should feel good about their jobs and enjoy being there. I
feel like in my career I’ve been very lucky.”
