Our Restoration Story
Our Restoration Partners
PCL Construction is a Canadian–American group of independent general contracting constuction companies with its headquarters in Edmonton and US headquarters in Denver, CO. With a history going back to its founding in 1907 in Stoughton, SK, PCL Construction has grown to become the largest contacting organization in Canada and the 8th largest in the United States.
PCL has perviously partnered on restoration work at St. John’s Cathedral during Phases 1–3 and is the construction manager for Phase 4. The local focus provided by their Saskatoon office and their previous experience working with our architect, the Restoration Committee and Cathedral building itself means that expertise and knowledge gained in previous phases of restoration will be applied to the present work.
"There are significant savings in completing additional work in the same spaces at the same time, in both construction and operating dollars. It will also prevent further structural damage going forward, if we can coordinate it and fund it appropriately now."Bert Munro, Acting Chair—Property Committee
