Effective Dec. 22,, PCL Constructors Canada Inc. will move its Toronto district operations to a sustainable office building at 2201 Bristol Circle, Suite 500, Oakville.

Located in Winston Business Park, the building has been designed to meet LEED Silver standards. PCL Toronto senior vice[president and district manager Todd Craigen said in a statement that  the construction company’s new district office demonstrates its “commitment to sustainable business practices, while providing enhanced amenities, parking and meeting spaces.”

“With the input of our staff, B+H Architects has designed our new workplace to reflect the office of the future, enabling innovative ways of working focused on collaboration and technology, including open spaces and hot desks,” Craigen said.

PCL Toronto says its new office will be easily accessible from downtown, with proximity to Queen Elizabeth Way, Highway 403, Highway 407 and public transit.

After the move, phone numbers and email addresses will remain unchanged.

Sustainable construction is among PCL Toronto’s specialties. In April 2017, one of the company’s projects achieved a LEED gold certification from the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC). The Humber River Hospital has an energy use intensity of 348 eKWh/m2 and 100% fresh air circulation, which is well above CSA-Z317 standards. In construction the facility, 20% of the materials used by PCL Toronto contained recycled content. About 96% of the construction waste was also diverted from landfill.

PCL Toronto also supports green initiatives. In May 2017, the company partnered with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources & Forestry for the Green Leaf Challenge, a program that aims to plant three million trees in 2017.
