Five finalists were competing for the Project of the Year Award, which was won by the BC Place project.

The BC Place project executed by Structal-Heavy Steel Construction, a division of Canam Group, was named Project of the Year 2012 at the Gala Awards Evening that took place last May 15 in Turin, Italy. The Stadium Business Awards recognize achievement, innovation, fresh thinking and the leaders in the world of stadium, arena and sports venue management.

The Project of the Year Award is presented to an expansion, modernization or major capital enhancement of an existing sporting venue that has delivered on all its project goals and more.

Completed in the third quarter of 2011, Structal was the steel contractor that obtained the contract to replace the stadium’s inflatable roof. The new cable-supported retractable roof is the largest of its kind in the world.
