This is an extract from ENR's list of largest contractors for 2010...
1 1 Bechtel, San Francisco, Calif.†
2 2 Fluor Corp., Irving, Texas†
3 4 KBR, Houston, Texas†
4 5 Kiewit Corp., Omaha, Neb.†
5 3 The Turner Corp., New York, N.Y.†
6 6 Skanska USA, New York, N.Y.†
7 8 Jacobs, Pasadena, Calif.
8 7 PCL Construction Enterprises Inc., Denver, Colo.†
9 10 Tutor Perini Corp., Sylmar, Calif.†
10 11 Foster Wheeler AG, Clinton, N.J.†
11 14 Clark Group, Bethesda, Md.†
This is a very comprehensive list, so I imagine whoever you are talking about is on it somewhere.
The only ones above PCL (only the US portion) that don't already have a play in the Alberta market is Skanska, USA & The Turner Corp.
With that in mind, these are some major companies that are very established in the US. From what I know these companies are similar in billings to PCL as a whole (6-7billion). The tone of your statement seems to imply differently that someone much larger is coming in?
I can see Kiewit pushing harder at the market as they have been growing their Alberta business over the last 5 years fairly aggressively.
