Nominated for the Telus Spark and West Light Rail Transit Station projects, CANA Construction believes the program brings recognition to project teams and the construction industry in the province.
“Mega-structures are being built all over the world, but there are actually some pretty significant projects happening right outside our back doors,” Luke Simpson, CANA’s business development and marketing manager toldConstruction Canada Online.
The awards will be distributed on March 21 at Northlands Edmonton EXPO Centre. The gala, themed “Leading and Shaping our Future” is expected to attract regional architects, engineers, and other industry professionals.
