PCL's story of the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) renovation offers a description of the project that highlights why construction industry professionals do the work they do. The ultimate goal of a general contractor is to provide best value to clients by finding solutions to challenges as they occur on the project site. In turn, the client is able to operate facilities that have a positive impact on the surrounding community. PCL's story captures the lengths the project team went to in an effort to enhance value for the client, while detailing construction techniques using common language that can be understood by readers without construction knowledge. In addition, the article connects to the reader by describing how the OCCC impacts the local community with their services and the economic activity that is generated by events held in the facility. PCL's article is complemented by beautiful photography of the newly renovated space using a clean format that appeals to readers. While much effort is required to write informative, project-focused articles for each issue of Horizons, the work pays off when clients follow up, asking for more information regarding PCL's construction methods that relate to their projects. This award entry article on the OCCC has provided value to PCL, as a client with a similar upcoming project reached out to the company with an invitation to bid on future work. Time and again PCL's clients are expressing their enthusiasm toward the articles they read in Horizons, which relate directly to their projects.
