Tarpon Wins PMI-SAC Project of The Year: Engineering & Construction

On Friday, March 4, the Project Management Institute – Southern Alberta Chapter (PMI-SAC) announced their 2016 Project Management Excellence and Achievement Award Winners. Our team is extremely proud to announce that we won the esteemed award for Project of the Year – Engineering & Construction.

Tarpon’s Modular E-houses and Remote Instrument Building Project was nominated because of our ability to manage a multifaceted scope and various geographical and cultural challenges. Located in Seoul, Korea, our client was due to execute their first-ever project for a major player within Alberta’s oil sands. By utilizing Tarpon’s unique Project Management system, our team identified the constraints to success, built a solid execution plan and controlled the project seamlessly.

Of the 30 nominations received, the PMI-SAC shortlisted 13 finalists in five different categories. “We were excited and honoured to be among the Finalists of this award. The caliber of every project was outstanding,” said D’Arcy Sullivan, Senior Project Manager – Major Projects. “We truly felt we were among a group of companies committed to project management excellence. Then, to learn that our project was chosen as the winner in our category, we couldn’t have been more proud.”

Joleen Burnett, General Manager – Modular Solutions, and Tarpon’s Sponsor for all modular projects, couldn’t agree more. “This particular project required Tarpon to acquire additional laydown property, nearly double our workforce in a span of only 6 weeks, and learn to effectively navigate the behaviourisms of the Korean business culture,” she says. “Hundreds of hands went into the success of this project – and I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every employee who supported us along the way. This award demonstrates our team’s ability to execute with excellence. It affirms that we have the right processes in place, and the best team available to provide real solutions for our clients.”

Tarpon would like to extend our appreciation to the PMI-SAC committee, and congratulations to all of our fellow PMI-SAC Finalists in 2016.
