The PCL family of companies are construction leaders in buildings, civil infrastructure, and heavy industrial markets. PCL is owned by employee shareholders across the United States, Canada, and Australia.

PCL is a proud British Columbia builder. We celebrated our 40th anniversary in BC in 2015, but our roots in the province date back to the early 1920s. Our first project was an addition to a BMO branch in downtown Vancouver, and many of our current projects include renovations and building upgrades. Over the past four decades, PCL is proud to have contributed to some of the region’s landmark projects including the Coquitlam Centre, Alex Fraser Bridge, Library Square, Vancouver Convention Centre West, BC Place’s New Roof many projects at the Vancouver International Airport.

As a construction partner, PCL is passionate about its work and prides itself on being a solution provider. As a testament to ingenuity, the Wood Innovation and Design Centre (WIDC), built in Prince George, was recently the grand prize winner of the Canadian Design-Build Awards.

Overall, PCL employs more than 4,500 full-time staff and more than 10,000 tradespeople. At any one time, we are involved with more than 700 projects, ranging in value from $20,000 to more than $1 billion and include office towers, residential condominiums, retail outlets, hotels and resorts, educational and health care facilities, bridges, airports and industrial facilities.

PCL’s employees are also committed to supporting the communities in which we live and work. In 2015, the PCL family of companies contributed more than $7.5 million to humanitarian organizations, food banks, sustainability initiatives and community groups. In addition, PCL was ranked #3 on Engineering News-Record (ENR) Magazine's list of Top 100 Green Contractors.

The PCL vision enhances the internal culture, and maintains PCL’s reputation as a construction leader, an employer of choice, and an active community member.
