Centennial Place East Tower is one of two office towers adding 1.2 million square feet of AAA office space to the landmark Eau Claire district in downtown Calgary. Phase 1 of the development called for a forty-story office building plus penthouse, five levels of underground parking, a loading dock, podium retail space with food court, a Plus 15 bridge, and exterior site work over the full city block. Upon completion, it exceeded (and continues to exceed) the expectations of its corporate tenants.
Centennial Place was built in the heart of a construction boom that saw record construction permit requests and a city-wide pace of growth that outpaced all other major Canadian centers. Leveraging experience and resources from other operations within the organization, PCL was able to allocate key staff, supervisors, and experienced workers to mitigate the effects of unprecedented shortages in all areas. PCL also used its global procurement experience to source materials and equipment from Asia, Australia, Europe, and parts of the USA.
