Piling Canada is officially accepting submissions for this year’s “Great Canadian Projects” issue. If your firm completed an interesting project in 2018 or 2019, Piling Canada encourages you to complete an entry and submit it to Piling Canada no later than Jan. 24, 2020.

Why submit?

After 2018’s well received inaugural “Great Canadian Projects” issue, the Piling Canada team decided to bring this issue back as an annual edition to celebrate the innovative work being done here in Canada and by Canadian companies. 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.
