410 Sherbrooke Street West - McGill University

Since 2007, QMD has been contracted by McGill University to deliver several mandates. The project at 410 Sherbrooke Street West is one of many large-scale works that the prestigious university entrusted our company with.

We were called on because of our expertise in delivering projects within the institutional sector and experience in the field of hotel renovation in particular. This mandate involved transforming a dilapidated hotel in downtown Montreal into a modern student residence that is adapted to the particular needs of its residents.

This project is unique because of its scale: the renovation of 180 apartments on 26 floors as well as vast interior shared spaces.

The particular nature of the construction site presented QMD with a range of challenges that included the presence of mold and the discovery that the original plumbing was beyond repair. We were committed to completing the works in time for the new academic year so we overcame the challenges by putting our logistical expertise to work and calling on our many partners. We also expanded our construction and supervision teams.

Lastly, we paid particular attention to the design quality and architectural finish and our client was very satisfied with the end result.
