Working
The PCL family of companies’ independent
Minnedosa Ethanol Plant
operating companies across North America
have the expertise and resources to meet
our clients’ diverse construction needs.
Minnedosa, Manitoba
Husky’s Minnedosa Ethanol Plant is a great example of the diverse
resources available to our customers through the PCL family of
companies. The plant was built near Minnedosa, Manitoba, 130 miles northwest of Winnipeg. PCL Industrial from Edmonton
secured the services of other PCL companies to get it done with the
accountability, reliability, cost-efficiency, quality, and timeliness we
all expect from each other in our organization.
Using the expertise wisely
It takes large volumes of concrete to establish the foundations for
a large industrial processing plant. So when our builders at PCL
Industrial Constructors Inc. in Edmonton went looking for an area
supplier to install the tricky, raft-style, floating slabs required for
Husky’s ethanol plant on the Minnedosa topography, they looked no
further than their trusted counterparts at PCL Constructors Canada
Inc. in Winnipeg. The Winnipeg team trucked in tons of crushed
granite fill and set the foundations once the fill settled. The PCL Industrial team then did what they do best: fabricate
pipe and install all of the components that, together, make up a
complex Heavy Industrial processing plant. All with concrete-solid
confidence that their counterparts at PCL in Winnipeg had created a foundation any builder would be proud of.
The two PCL teams then worked together to get it all done
managing the subtrades onsite and partnering on the structural steel construction, masonry, and architectural cladding.
And to make sure it was all wired together with the highest
attention to detail? PCL Industrial immediately went to another
trusted counterpart, PCL Intracon Power Inc., to provide their
expertise to manage the subcontracted installation of all electrical components.
Owner: Husky Oil Operations Ltd.
General Contractor: PCL Industrial Constructors Inc.
Primary Consultant: KGS Group

500 workers onsite
What is ethanol?
• High-octane, alcohol-based
fuel additive produced from
grain, including wheat. Ethanolblended fuels increase octane
ratings, reduce tail-pipe
emissions, and protect vehicles
from gas-line freezing.

Sound Transit Link Light
Rail Project Section C755
Two of these unique internal joint ventures
demonstrate that our experts in buildings, civil
infrastructure, and heavy industrial can get
together to deliver projects the PCL Way.
Seattle, Washington
A perfect match was made in Seattle when our PCL Civil
Constructors Inc. team from Tampa, Florida brought their unique
segmental bridge construction expertise north to work with
the PCL Construction Services, Inc. team from Seattle. The two
operations are so diverse that a formal internal partnering
process was set in motion that resulted in a team culture of
accountability, reliability, cost-efficiency, quality, and timeliness.
Using the expertise wisely
Initially, the PCL Civil team focused on constructing over five miles of access roads, with the PCL Seattle team following close behind with piers and foundation concrete. PCL Civil, meanwhile, took advantage of Seattle’s existing
supplier relationship to cast the precast segments for the Sound Transit Link Light Rail Project Section C755 Facts:

In the PCL family of companies, we believe
part of our winning formula is the expertise
and experience we have in understanding and
developing solutions for our clients’ construction
vision long before a shovel hits the dirt.
Building success by starting smart
To remain competitive in the North American construction
industry, builders are constantly looking to find ways to
meet clients’ construction needs when they get to site.
In the PCL family of companies, we believe one of our
superior services is the expertise and experience we have
in assisting our clients long before construction begins.
Industry-leading preconstruction services
From the first day we become engaged with a client, our people
welcome the challenge of offering the very best the construction
industry has to offer in preconstruction services.
It’s much more than getting onsite and figuring how to best build it
there; it’s really about understanding the underlying root of the project
objectives and goals, and using our resources to meet them.
It provides solid, accurate advice so that our clients can
make sound, realistic business decisions ahead of time rather
than during the construction process. As a result of our early
dedication to collaborating with our clients and their project
teams, we are there to assist with some of the most critical project decisions.
Once the large issues are identified, analyzed, and discussed
through this proactive understanding process, the team
incorporates the required materials, systems, and elements into
the process efficiently, with full understanding of any impact to
the functional or aesthetic design.
We also realize significant cost savings through accurate
cost analysis, innovative and efficient construction plans, and
enhanced schedule control. (You can read more about our
increasing use of Building Information Modeling on the following
pages for more detail on our process.)
How do we do it?
Collaboration, collaboration, collaboration …
It’s about being committed to firstly understanding our clients’
business and, secondly, understanding what our clients are planning
to build to support or grow their businesses.
PCL builders apply their extensive knowledge of construction and
current market conditions to make suggestions, evaluate alternatives,
and offer solutions that will exceed our clients’ expectations
— solutions that fit realistically within our clients’ budgets and
timeframes.
And … we bring a North-America wide team to join our clients’
teams: we bring the resources of the entire PCL family. Any one set
of PCL builders in any specific PCL office has convenient access to
the experience and expertise of more than 3,000 PCL professionals
working out of twenty-eight major office locations across North
America. Added is that our organization’s intranet is a diamond mine
of best practices right at the fingertips of our builders.
Consulting with our own
PCL also offers our clients the services of an internal Peer Review
Team of seasoned construction professionals who challenge
the proposed construction process and plan to ensure we are
building the project in the most effective and cost-efficient
manner possible. Our Peer Review Team’s constructability advice
leads to the design being developed into a workable construction
plan. This review has become standard with any large PCL project
and is included in our preconstruction service.
Getting in on the design phase early
By being included as early as possible in the design phase, we can
fully understand the project challenges and offer suggestions that
complement the objectives. Those suggestions come from years and
years of construction experience that have ultimately saved our clients
time and money.
This value-added service sets up the construction plan to be
proactive in avoiding pitfalls and costly changes during construction.
Moving on to the construction phase
Our clients maximize their investment in PCL’s preconstruction
services when the natural progression from preconstruction to
construction can be overlapped within the PCL family. Our early
involvement in the project continues to deliver added value
when we are selected to perform design-build or construction
management services.

The PCL Construction Services, Inc. (Hawaii) and Nordic Construction,
Ltd. joint venture team saved our client more than $22 million on
the original contract value of $303 million by providing more than a
hundred value engineering ideas during the preconstruction phase of
this luxury condominium project in the Hawaiian Islands. The ideas
included steel stud roof trusses instead of structural steel; alternate
window, door, and trim manufacturers; an alternate light-fixture
package; and Trane vertical closet heat pumps instead of outside air
units. The team also advised our client to centrally locate the electrical
room to minimize conduit runs.
“PCL was hired for preconstruction services on the Kapalua Bay Project after
completion of 60% CD’s (construction documents) based on their extensive
experience and did not disappoint. The project was substantially over budget
when subcontractor pricing was secured and that is when PCL went to work.
In working with subcontractors and utilizing their own vast data base of cost
and material information, PCL brought to the table value engineering savings
of approximately 40% of the initial over-run, of which 23% was subsequently
approved by the Joint Venture and implemented into the construction
documents. During the process, PCL first looked to the “behind the walls”
items focusing on more efficient ways to simplify building/site structures and
MEP (mechanical/electrical/plumbing) systems. These items realized the most
significant savings and allowed the project to maintain the “touch and feel”
items which actually drive marketability and sales of the units.” —Rob Centra,

The PCL Constructors Canada Inc. (Toronto) team coaxed PCL
legend Michael O’Malley out of retirement to provide his vast
office tower construction expertise to lead the preconstruction
team in challenging preliminary plans and evaluating alternatives
and solutions that could help save time and money. Thanks to
this planning, PCL was able to pre-buy all of the glass saving
approximately $10 per square foot of glass on this 1,775,000
square-foot project.
“PCL continuously demonstrates their commitment to adding value
to our projects and the RBC Centre is no exception. Another example
is the recent addition to the Toronto Eaton Centre that included retail
and parking space, as well as the Ryerson School of Business. PCL
provided two separate GMP’s (guaranteed maximum price) for the
project (one to Cadillac Fairview and one to Ryerson) and was able to
meet significant preconstruction challenges through value engineering
a 10 per cent reduction in project cost, which enabled us to receive
budgetary approval to proceed.” —David Handley, Senior Vice President of

BIM
“PCL’s implementation of the BIM 3D modeling tool proved to be instrumental in assuring the
successful expansion of Memorial Hospital Central. The expansion on our existing site was complex
by nature and the schedule was constrained by key milestones. I’m not sure if the schedule would
have been met without the careful planning of the project team and the utilization of the modeling
tool. I believe by using the BIM tool, potential delays were eliminated and cost associated with re-work was saved.” —Greg Gauna, Director of Planning, Design, & Construction, Memorial Health System

How BIM adds value
Preconstruction services
In the PCL family of companies, we are quickly becoming known for
our ability to virtually build a project before construction starts using
a process called Building Information Modeling (BIM) [also referred
to as Virtual Design Construction (VDC), construction modeling, and
other names].
BIM is a software tool that enables our experts to build a digital
representation of the project in the virtual world. By using this
model to simulate the design, construction, and operation of a
project, we are able to optimize the cost, time, and quality before a shovel is put into the ground, avoiding conflicts and issues, and delivering the project on time and on budget. This effectively allows us to “build the project twice”, once virtually and second actually. The visualization and communication opportunities that result
from using BIM are the most significant during this phase. By combining BIM with PCL’s estimating, scheduling &
planning tools and expertise, and previous project experience
and knowledge, we can ensure that we optimize the project’s
design, construction, and operation with respect to cost, time,
and quality — adding value at every step of a project’s lifespan. BIM also helps manage risk for each stakeholder. This is accomplished by collaboratively defining each of the project-specific risks, developing a strategy for managing each of these risks, and communicating these strategies with each stakeholder.

“By incorporating schedule, manpower, and billings to the 3D model built
during preconstruction, PCL provided us with a powerful tool helping our
entire team understand the complexity of the project. This was also a very
valuable component to our lenders package helping them grasp the scope
and cash flow requirements for our project.”—John Wallace, Senior Vice

impossible to foresee all the twists and turns necessary to

Combining BIM with PCL’s project management and scheduling
systems helps ensure that the numerous activities required to build a project are managed and executed in the most efficient
manner possible.
The principal use of BIM during construction is in the coordination
of building systems. By creating accurate models of each of these
systems, we are able to run clash detection routines that find every
clash between objects and find solutions to these clashes before
they impact the cost and schedule of a project.

PCL’s front-end work on the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre,
the first public-private partnership hospital built in British Columbia, is a great
example of how PCL builds partnerships with clients that last.

another sparkling example of how PCL works with its clients to
form lasting partnerships built in mutual respect and trust. The
partnership with the Access Health Abbotsford team, and, ultimately,
the City of Abbotsford on the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and
Cancer Centre has led to PCL becoming part of the fabric of the
Abbotsford community. The PCL Vancouver team is now the design

that our people live century-old PCL values of honesty, integrity,
respect, and passion for what they do. In a 100% employeeowned organization like PCL, our clients are really working with

In a solid partnership with people truly invested in the cause, sometimes
it takes one of the partners going above and beyond to help the other
out. So when the City of Abbotsford’s decades-old granite cenotaph
needed to be moved to its new home in Thunderbird Square near City
Hall, our partners at the City knew who to ask. PCL Vancouver donated
the extra time and equipment required to dismantle, lift, and move the
cenotaph to its new location and re-set the historical monument once
it was there. Now that’s building a partnership.

The famous Balboa Theatre in San Diego’s Gaslamp district is one
of our latest historical preservation and restoration projects. This
architectural marvel of the past is an important landmark and one
of the centerpieces of the historic redevelopment of San Diego.

History of the Balboa Theatre
The Balboa Theatre in San Diego’s Gaslamp district, originally built
in 1924, was the city’s first big downtown theater built to showcase
motion pictures. The theater was also equipped with full stage
facilities for vaudeville performances. During the 1920s and 30s, the
theater enjoyed sustained success, but later fell to slower times and
an eventual shutdown. PCL’s restoration of the historic Balboa Theatre
resulted in the early 2008 opening of the facility as a performing arts
venue designed to house diverse programs of local, national, and
international performances, as well as community, corporate, and
convention gatherings.

with a company that is willing to share all this
information with employees.”
are busier than ever these days, thanks to the successful
roll-out of our Foundations for Operational Excellence training
course. This flagship offering from PCL’s renowned College of
Construction is an innovative way of developing our bright young
stars in the midst of a tight labor market, while simultaneously
giving them the foundational skills they need to carry out PCL’s
dedication to excellence on our jobsites. With over 1,500 graduates
to date (and counting), the course has been so successful that it is
being further implemented in PCL operations across North America.

“The course was excellent and taught me a great
deal about what I don’t know. I have a long way to
go, but at least now I have a target.”
The course is targeted at employees with between six
months and three years of PCL experience, and its centralized
delivery format ensures that consistent messages about ethics,
safety, quality, productivity, and other topics are communicated
to every attendee. It is a way to address the need for more
mentors for our ever-increasing numbers of new hires, and
it is a boot-camp initiation that gets everybody on the same
page about what it means to be part of one of North America’s
largest general contracting organizations. More importantly,
according to our graduates, it’s worth the four-day investment
at the beginning of their PCL careers.
“What a phenomenal package of information on
project procedures and the PCL way! Not only will
this help new employees but it will help me mentor
those coming up behind me.”
Foundations for Operational Excellence is just one of the
latest additions to our extensive library of training courses that
have effectively developed our people into the best the industry
has to offer. The recently introduced PCL: A Culture of Integrity
Code of Conduct course, for example, is a mandatory session for
every PCL employee. Attended by over 2,900 salaried, hourly,
and student employees to date,
the Code of Conduct course
is our effort to ensure that
everyone in the PCL family of
companies is actively engaged
in our commitment to ethical
business practices.
With an ongoing dedication
to training, mentoring, and
improving our team, the PCL
Way has become synonymous
with industry excellence.
