École Internationale du Vieux Longueuil
The Marie-Victorin School Board called on QMD to build a new school and complete the project before the start of the 2016 school year. Most of the existing building had to be demolished and the interior revamped, after reinforcing the structure and renovating the roof. The works were carried out on 2 floors, each of which spanned 25,000 sq. ft. This project involved creating 31 classrooms, installing the necessary washroom facilities and renovating 80% of the electrical, ventilation and plumbing systems. Most of the outdoor courtyard was also redesigned.
This mandate presented one considerable challenge: the timeline. It was vital that we deliver an accessible and functional building before the start of the school year. Because we remained committed to achieving this goal, the school was completed a month before students returned to class. Also, despite a few unforeseen factors, we managed to stay within the initial budget.
As a result of this achievement, the client gave us an excellent recommendation and thanked us for our professionalism .
