“Our team at Stuart Olson Dominion is pleased to have been selected to build yet another landmark project in the province of Manitoba,” said David LeMay, Churchill’s president and COO. “This announcement of the convention centre construction award, along with the current work at the University of Manitoba, the Investors Group stadium and the Winnipeg Zoo reflects our long-term commitment to growing our business in the province.”

The company said that design and construction activities for the expanded centre will incorporate sustainable practices and target Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver certification when finished, targeted for the last quarter of 2015.
