Winnipeg, Manitoba (March 15, 2016) – PCL Constructors Canada Inc. was excited to host Winnipeg Jets defenseman Mark Stuart on Monday at the MTS Iceplex expansion, currently under construction by the district’s Special Projects team.
The visit to the Jets practice facility was part of the team’s “Take a Jet to Work Day” program. After undergoing a safety orientation, Stuart was “put to work” by PCL superintendent Chris Erbus and special projects manager Chad Keuler. The Jets assistant captain then helped remove some existing cladding to make way for a media viewing window.
“Mark is a rugged defenseman who doesn’t shy away from the difficult areas on the ice, and seeing him here on our project site it was evident he has the same attitude off the ice as well.” said PCL vice president and district manager Sean Barnes, “We know how important the Jets are to Winnipeg and the province of Manitoba, and we feel the same way about our work here at PCL when it comes to building our community.”
PCL is a proud partner with the Winnipeg Jets and True North Sports and Entertainment Ltd., having previously built the MTS Centre, and now currently working on True North Square in downtown Winnipeg.
