Top Company 2011 winner: PCL Construction Enterprises

the staff of ColoradoBiz


PCL Construction  
Years in business: 36 (U.S.),
105 (global)
Location: Denver
President and COO: Peter Beaupré (Watch an interview with Peter on ColoradoBiz TV.)
Employees: 3,300
Company snapshot:
PCL builds in three main sectors: buildings, civil infrastructure and heavy industrial. PCL's family of companies has an
annual construction volume of more than $5
billion, making it the largest contracting organization in Canada and one of the largest in the United States.
Notable practice: PCL believes you must have all three elements - people, profits and philanthropy - to truly be a construction leader and employer of choice. It is a 100 percent employee owned company. In 2009, PCL launched a Quality Management Enhancement Initiative for its U.S. operations. This began with a review of existing operations and procedures across all U.S. operations to gather the "best of the best" quality practices.
Community involvement: As a construction company, PCL builds buildings, roads and bridges. As individuals, PCL employees build communities. One of many examples: President and COO Peter Beaupré, a board member of Mile High United Way since 2005, implemented the PCL "Million Dollar Club" for MHUW's Lights On After School program. He creatively challenged PCL employee/owners to raise $1 million for the cause in four years. The goal was achieved in three years.
