Marianopolis College Phase I, upgrades to mechanical and electrical systems

Marianopolis College is located in a heritage building in Westmount that was built in 1908 by the Congrégation de Notre-Dame and served as their mother house.

QMD was contracted in 2017 to replace the heating and air-conditioning systems in several pavilions and on 4 different floors. The project also involved installing new sprinklers to align the building with the latest safety standards. The works began in June and were completed in under 5 months so that the heating system would be functional before the cold weather set in.

This project also led us to completely redesign the classrooms. In fact, the rooms in this former convent were small and therefore not quite adapted to the needs of a college.

Throughout the project, we ensured that we did not affect the college’s day-to-day activities by liaising with the management team when planning deliveries and schedules and by limiting works beside occupied classrooms. In order to do this, we developed and followed a very detailed sequence of works.
