Tackling Challenging Projects

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 West 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.”​ ​​​​​​​
