08 Apr Steel River Group and PBA Group of Companies Announce Strategic Partnership
Calgary, Alberta, April 8, 2021 – Calgary-based Steel River Group Ltd. (“SRG” or the “Company”), an Indigenous-owned diversified management and construction consortium, is pleased to announce they have entered a strategic partnership with PBA Group of Companies (“PBA” or “PBA Group”), a full-spectrum real estate company, also based in Calgary.
With a stellar track record of planning and developing award-winning retail, industrial parks, master-planned communities, and innovative hotels, PBA will support Steel River Group’s affiliated companies and relationships (the Steel River Ecosystem) as they look to build premier assets across Canada.
“Steel River Group and PBA share a passion for creating resilient and prosperous communities,” said Trent Fequet, Founder and CEO of Steel River Group. “I have no doubt that this synergy will provide the foundation for a collaborative and lasting partnership, one that will aid in creating positive social, cultural and economic change for our Ecosystem.”
Steel River Group will work with PBA on a diverse scope of projects, including several developments and expansions in British Columbia. This will be amplified by Steel River’s People-Public-Private-Partnership (P4) Model, which enhances Indigenous ownership on major projects.
In business since 1965, PBA Group brings a progressive and collaborative approach to business that will immediately synergize with the Steel River Ecosystem. A leader in community giving, PBA’s corporate culture and values align with the vision and outlook of Steel River Group to support Indigenous Partners across Canada.
“Shared values are the foundation of great partnerships,” said Patricia Phillips, PBA’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are honored to partner with Trent and the amazing team he has assembled at Steel River Group to build community-oriented, environmentally-friendly developments in the Steel River Ecosystem and beyond.”
Steel River Group looks forward to working with PBA to support Indigenous communities in pursuing real estate and development opportunities that create sustainable investments.
