Edmonton, Alberta (December 11, 2015) – PCL Construction is pleased to announce a successful showing at the 2015 Alberta Construction Magazine Top Projects Awards. Three PCL projects from Southern Alberta, and one from the north, were winners.
Calgary City Centre won in the Commercial over $50 Million category. The project stands out for its scale and also for its goal to achieve a LEED Platinum designation, a rare occurrence for an office tower in Canada.
The Elbow River Pedestrian Bridge Replacements won in the Civil under $50 Million category. The 60-meter suspension bridge is one of three located at Sandy Beach Park, a major recreation area for Calgary residents, which were wiped out in the flooding of June 2013.
Kearl Phase 2 near Fort McMurray won in the Industrial over $50 Million category. Production from the $9 billion expansion project will ultimately reach 110,000 barrels per day, bringing the total from Kearl up to 220,000 barrels per day. During the execution of the Kearl expansion, the team achieved a three-fold improvement in safety performance.
In an online poll that Alberta Construction Magazine held in early November, readers were asked to choose their favorite from all the Top Projects submissions. The Canalta Centre, a multipurpose event facility in Medicine Hat, won the People’s Choice Award. The arena is the new home of the Western Hockey League’s Medicine Hat Tigers.
The Top Project Awards were presented on December 9 at the Calgary Petroleum Club.
