We strive to deliver top quality results with all our products, operations and services. We understand the importance of quality when working with any project scope - whether it is a small project with demanding specifications, highway bridge decks or residential homes. PLC has experience in all types of projects, from big to small we deliver top quality results.
How do we meet these high standards? It begins with our employees, who are fully trained in equipment operation, product knowledge, and field testing procedures. All our concrete is produced per CSA A23.1/09 (CSA standard governing ready-mix concrete). We operate a concrete testing lab in Grande Prairie, and our employees are trained for testing by the ACI (American Concrete Institute).
We source all our cement powder, supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) and admixtures exclusively from Tier One suppliers to assure quality and supply availability. We produce all our own aggregates to achieve consistency and a stable supply, and these are tested to ensure they comply with CSA A23.1 for cleanliness, gradation, and chemical and mechanical properties. All our mix designs are developed by independent expert consultants. To guarantee consistent strength properties that exceed specification requirements, we regularly sample and test all our mix designs.
To keep our track record of exceeding customer expectations, we regularly inspect and maintain our production equipment, including aggregate crushers, concrete batch plants, and mixer trucks. Our concrete batch plants are inspected by Professional Engineers and Certified by Alberta Ready-Mix Concrete Association. Looking to the future, we have implemented a Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) program to improve operational efficiency and product quality.
Peter-Lane Concrete has access to a complete and accredited concrete and aggregate testing lab at our facility Grande Prairie, AB. The focus of this lab is on our own internal testing for process and Quality Control, but we are happy to help with your testing needs.
Founded in 1992, Peter-Lane Concrete (PLC) was a family owned and operated company until 2014, when it was acquired as a division of N.P.A. Ltd by Colas Canada. Today, PLC is still locally operated and values the principles of integrity and innovation that the company was founded on more than 20 years ago. We also take the safety of our personnel, our clients and the environment very seriously.
At PLC, we're committed to giving back to our community. In the past, we have sponsored and donated money to a variety of organizations, including the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital, the Festival of Trees, PARDS, SPCA, the Grande Prairie Chuckwagon Heritage Society, Wembley Minor Hockey and the Benefit for Denise Hudak.

Concrete is all around us - everywhere we live, work, and play. Although concrete may seem ordinary, it is a complex material with a long history dating back over 2,000 years!
Early forms of concrete-like materials were first used in ancient Egypt. Egyptians mixed lime and gypsum as a mortar to build the Great Pyramids we see today.
The Romans later invented “pozzuolana”, a mixture of slaked lime and volcanic ash. Mixed with stones and sand, pozzuolana created a material that closely resembles modern concrete. Pozzuolana can still be seen today in the ruins of ancient Rome.
The concrete we use today is a mixture of coarse aggregates (rock and stones), fine aggregates (sand), and a binder paste composed of Portland cement and water.
Concrete starts out as a thick, viscous material that hardens when the binder paste reacts with water, a process called “hydration.” This reaction starts out rapidly after the concrete is placed; the pace in which concrete sets can be controlled by continuous mixing or through the addition of chemical additives known as admixtures.
Concrete hardens by hydration for years after placement, and gains strength as it ages. The concrete strength measurement is based on its 28-day strength, which is deemed by engineering authorities as a suitable length of time for curing before testing a concrete’s strength.
Although the “recipe” for concrete might appear straightforward, a virtually infinite variety of concrete mixes are possible. It requires precision and controlling the amount and type of aggregate, cement, water, and chemical additives used in its production.
Some examples of these variations include:
