Modernisation of the Cité-du-Havre

In the heart of the Cité du Havre, the Montreal Port Administration and its tenants occupy a huge heritage building that is a former 1967 World Fair pavilion.

In 2015, the QMD team was selected to manage the renovation and maintenance works in collaboration with the project manager and designers.

This very complex construction site was made up of two areas: external works on the building structure (including the demolition of an existing curtain wall and restoration of the building envelope), and interior renovations aimed at improving safety and ensuring an optimal delivery of services. Therefore, we completed restored the fire alarms and upgraded the elevators and the mechanical and electrical systems. We also improved user comfort by installing a new heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system, among other things. Lastly, we delivered a very varied series of leasehold improvements in the administrative offices, rest areas, cafeteria and convenience store, for example.

Throughout the works, the tenants were able to continue their business activities as before, thanks to meticulous planning, efficient communication and the installation of temporary solutions.
