Piling Canada is officially accepting submissions for this year’s “Great Canadian Projects” issue. If your firm completed an interesting project in 2017 or 2018, Piling Canada encourages you to complete an entry and submit it to Piling Canada no later than Dec. 3, 2018. All entries are free, and companies can submit an unlimited number of projects for consideration. The selected projects will be featured in the Quarter 1 2019 issue of Piling Canada.

 

Why submit?

After last year’s well received inaugural “Great Canadian Projects” issue, the Piling Canada team decided to bring this issue back to celebrate the innovative work being done here in Canada and by Canadian teams. This issue acknowledges the ingenuity, hard work and commitment that goes into each deep foundation project and recognizes excellence in construction projects from coast to coast.

Through the “Great Canadian Projects” issue, Piling Canada recognizes those companies that have integrated unique design considerations, problem solving, value engineering, cost savings, innovative applications and benefits to the community or owner, into their projects.
