The OakWood-PCL Advantage

Building process at the beginning

OakWood-PCL is the result of an inspired partnership between OakWood, one of the largest and most established full-service Design & Build contractors in the National Capital Region, and PCL, a group of general contracting construction companies with diverse operations across Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, and Australia.

What distinguishes OakWood-PCL is our combined experience, track record for innovation, dedication to quality, and process expertise. Few if any Canadian commercial construction companies have our depth-of-experience or the ability to offer the most innovative products, materials, and technologies as part of an integrated, software driven end-to-end Design & Build solution that we do.
