Holiday displays bring cheer to construction sites
These contractors are getting festive by decorating their jobsites in unique ways.
At year’s end, construction sites across the country often don lights and other festive displays. To capture some of this creativity, Construction Dive asked readers to submit photos of their jobsites decorated for the holidays.
We’ve chosen some of the best and brightest submissions and rounded them up below. Read on to see the photos and learn a little more about the projects.
Located at the site of a $1.7 billion construction project for the new St. Paul’s Hospital, the “Lights of Hope” display is an annual fundraiser located at the entrance of the current hospital, according to a PCL spokesperson. It’s decorated with lights and other holiday vestments, and corporate sponsors can purchase a star that’s displayed in the light show. Funds from the stars go toward medical equipment, research and other avenues for the hospital. PCL purchased a star in 2021.
While PCL is building the new hospital nearby, the contractor wanted to express its solidarity with the hospital’s initiative, and built their own version of the display at the entrance to their construction site. The new hospital is expected to be completed in 2027.
