Dec 6 2008

CHARLOTTETOWN – A crowd of over 200 people were in attendance Thursday for the official opening of APM’s new head office in Charlottetown.

The Island-based construction services company opened their doors to guests to showcase their new Head Office–Service Centre. On hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony at the official opening included many friends of the firm, an array of Prince Edward Island’s business community and representatives of the Government of Prince Edward Island, including Premier Robert Ghiz who cut the ribbon with APM President Tim Banks.

"Prince Edward Island is fortunate to have someone with Tim’s entrepreneurial spirit, proving that Island companies can compete outside of our Province on the national stage and around the world" said Premier Robert Ghiz upon the cutting of the ribbon. "APM is building across Canada’ creating significant investment in jobs here on Prince Edward Island at this new service centre’ and also through APM’s continued support of Island firms, who provide sub-trade work for their off Island projects".

Banks thanked his staff "I owe all our success to a talented group of employees who have the experience and drive to criss-cross the country completing construction projects on time and on budget." Banks said, "it is a tremendous asset that has been developed by each one of our over 200 employees and they are not afraid to step up and go where the work is." The company has continued its growth since formation in 1980 as a local construction management firm to constructing multi-million dollar real estate projects across Canada for local, regional, and national client partners including Sears Canada, Canadian Tire, and Loblaws.

Identified as APM MacLean, the new four storey head office will be the home of the "service centre" for the firm as it consolidates its engineering, accounting, and design groups into a single office which will provide support services to the company’s operations across Canada; including offices in Halifax, Toronto and Calgary.

APM MacLean is located at 3 Lower Malpeque Road, just off the Trans-Canada Highway, and easily identified by the firm’s logo on the vibrant green accent tower.

Why green? "We incorporated a number of green – environmentally friendly – initiatives into the construction of the building and we wanted to highlight this in some way" explains Banks.
