Poole Construction Company Ltd.

PCL began operations in 1906, as E.E. Contractors, founded by Ernest Edward Poole (October 18, 1883 – March 12, 1964) of Stoughton, Saskatchewan.

In 1913, Ernest Poole renamed the company to Poole Construction Company Limited. In 1932 the company was moved to its current corporate headquarters in Edmonton, Alberta. In 1975 PCL opened its U.S. head office in Denver, Colorado. Ernest Poole’s sons, John Edward (1917-2007) and George Ernest (1921-1997), sold the company to their 25 employees and Great West Life in 1977. In 1978, Poole Construction Company Limited became PCL Construction Limited.
