Edmonton, AB (October 29, 2019) –
The PCL family of companies is pleased to announce that PCL Construction
(Atlantic Canada) has received the Award of Excellence from the Canadian
Design-Build Institute (CDBI) for the design and construction of storage and
maintenance Infrastructure in Support of Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicles
(TAPVs) at 5th Canadian Division Support Base Gagetown in Oromocto, New
PCL, with Stantec Consulting, made efforts to ensure that the
building, although a military facility, was not simply utilitarian. Numerous
windows and clerestory glazing maximize daylight in the interior. A solar wall
preheats supply air, and the facility has sustainable lighting throughout.
Petroleum oil lubricants are stored, and batteries are charged, in
explosion-proof rooms. Large span trusses improve vehicle movement, and
260-millimeter-thick concrete reinforced slab-on-grade with slab thickenings
support heavy loads of TAPVs, equipment, and a 25-tonne top-running crane.
Defence Construction Canada, the project owner and contract
authority in support of the Department of National Defence observed that
fast-tracking the design, procurement, and award for the building structure and
envelope allowed an early start to construction, thus avoiding winter
conditions. The project team delivered the project under budget and eight
months ahead of schedule in June 2017.
The award was presented at the CDBI National Design-Build
Conference, held this year October 17 and 18 in Montreal, Quebec.
