PCL has more than $5
billion of completed projects in our farm-to-plate portfolio, demonstrating a
solid track record in the agribusiness and food services market. We are a
customer-focused, fully integrated one-stop service provider.
Founded in Saskatchewan in 1906, we are proud of our prairie
roots and longstanding contribution to the
growth of rural communities across North America. PCL’s head office relocated
to the wheat-growing heartland of Edmonton, Alberta, in 1932, where it remains
today. We understand the agriculture and food services business because we have
grown up with it.
This prairie spirit, instilled in our companies for more
than a century of operations, is also fortified by employee ownership. Our 100%
employee-owned organization empowers us to be solution providers, “to see it,
own it, solve it, do it.” We share the visions of, and build mutual success for
our clients, construction partners, and communities. The proof is in our
standing as the largest general contractor in Canada and among the top ten in
the United States.
The PCL family of companies is a diversified organization,
operating within three sectors: buildings, industrial, and civil infrastructure.
Since agribusiness uniquely incorporates aspects of these sectors, we draw on
our collective expertise to deliver tried-and-true practices to every project. To
ensure consistent, high-quality project delivery, we have established a center
of excellence for agribusiness and food services, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and
another center focused on food and manufacturing plant construction, based in Minneapolis,
These centers support the work of project teams in
independent PCL offices that are strategically situated across the continent. Our
local project teams give clients personalized attention, which is fortified by
their local market knowledge and business partnerships. We team up with best-in-class
designers/consultants, trade contractors, and suppliers, using a careful
selection process that is designed to ensure successful project completion.
We perform all types of construction and can build any size
or scope of project. Clients are provided with competitive fees and rates to
deliver projects within one of our many delivery methods (e.g., design-build,
construction management, traditional bid). Currently, our growing design-build
portfolio has more than 780 projects.
We also provide preconstruction services, such as budgeting,
conceptual design, and constructability analysis, to give projects the best
chance of success, before we even start construction. Clients also benefit from
our virtual construction capabilities, Lean design and construction practices,
and green building expertise. Also, where required, we have the ability to cost
effectively self-perform major portions of a project with our own people.
Our focus is on the jobsite because it is performance in the
field that really counts. Our well-established safety and loss prevention
program contributes to our industry-leading safety record. Equally important is
our commitment to quality and superior workmanship. We stake our reputation on
