To meet the needs of its growing population, the City of Calgary undertook a major expansion and update of its primary transit network, with the addition of four new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) routes. CEL was contracted by PCL Construction Ltd. to manage electrical services for all new BRT platforms and shelters. This involved 90 sites, city-wide, over an intensive three-year construction period.

CEL was contracted to manage the first major electrical upgrade of Shell Canada’s Winnipeg Terminal since its initial construction. Work was completed in stages over a two-year period, with strategic area outages to ensure the plant remained operational throughout.

Graymont / Exshaw – Robotic Process Conveyances and Bagging


Scope of work and summary:

At the gateway to the Rocky Mountains, is the Graymont plant in Exshaw, Alberta. This facility produces a wide range of lime and limestone products. The company sought to move away from a largely manual process where employees had to physically place bags under the fill nozzle – and instead introduce a fully automated system.

Safety First – 2019 President’s Safety Award

Safety is a priority and a challenge for any trade working in industrial and commercial settings. Companies like CEL put great effort into protecting our employees, clients, visitors, sub-contractors, the public – even property and the environment – when working onsite. While a perfect record is the goal, it is incredibly hard to achieve. Yet, this is exactly what the team at our Camrose branch accomplished in 2019. Due to their uncompromising commitment to ensuring all personnel return safely home at the end of each shift, the Camrose branch went through the entire 2019 calendar year with ZERO safety and environmental incidents. For this remarkable feat, they were presented our 2019 President’s Safety Award.
“Camrose had an extremely busy year. CEL asks our employees to execute all work in a manner that adheres to our strong safety standard and safety culture. The Camrose team were enthusiastic participants in our new safety programs and their numbers prove it!” beamed Dallas Smith, COO. “It was a concerted effort, and all members of our Camrose team should be very proud of their accomplishment.” Smith added that the Camrose branch also set the standard when it came to hazard recognition and mitigation through their detailed and well-executed project plans, hazard assessments, and hazard ID program. “At CEL, we work collaboratively across our entire company to continually improve our safety practices, policies and procedures. The lessons learned here will be shared across our entire organization. Congratulations to the entire Camrose team. You earned this!”

CEL’s Calgary team lighting up the holidays!

The team at CEL Electrical Contractors is used to lighting up buildings. But they all agree that nothing compares to the feeling of lighting up the faces of young families ahead of the holiday season. In what has become an annual tradition, staff from CEL’s Calgary office played the role of Santa’s little helpers, serving up food and smiles at the Louise Dean Centre’s Christmas dinner. The children were thrilled as Santa Claus made a special appearance, and brought a sack of gifts. Once he’d seen all of the children, Santa even made time for the big kids from CEL. The Louise Dean Centre is a school dedicated to the unique needs of pregnant teens and young mothers. It provides valuable services and a supportive environment that allows these students to continue with their education – within a safe, nurturing environment for newborns and young children. The program is operated through a partnership between Catholic Family Services (CFS) and the Calgary Board of Education. Patricia Jones, CEO of Catholic Family Services appreciates the ongoing work CEL does on behalf of CFS.
“The CEL crew is fantastic. They are very understated. They show up to do their job without fanfare. We are so lucky to have them,” Jones beamed.
In addition to volunteering their time to the Louise Dean Centre, CEL is proud to lend its financial support to this incredible organization. Across the country, CEL and its employees take great pride in supporting the communities where they work and call home. On behalf of the entire team, from Alberta to Ontario, CEL wishes you and yours a warm and magical Merry Christmas.
