Vancouver, BC, February 2018 – Today, EllisDon announced it has been selected to provide Construction Management Services for the CORE Program at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) in Vancouver, British Columbia, following a competitive bid process.

“We are very excited to be an integral part of the CORE Program team and to begin building a relationship with Vancouver Airport Authority, the organization that manages YVR,” said David McFarlane, Senior Vice-President and Pacific Region Area Manager.

The Airport Authority is committed to integrating sustainability into its operations by improving energy efficiency in its facilities and advancing overall energy conservation.
