Year after year, QMD has proven that it can recreate an identical heritage building and restore its original splendour. We rely on the rare expertise of our specialized business partners, especially cabinetmakers and masons. Our reputation is built on being thorough and precise, so we meticulously plan our projects so as to avoid any unforeseen issues. This level of preparation is crucial for projects involving heritage buildings.
However, preserving the past requires adapting to the needs of the present day. Two examples of such projects are the McGill University Arts Building and the École des Métiers de la Restauration et du Tourisme de Montréal. We managed to restore the windows of the Arts Building while increasing their energy efficiency, and were able to create, inside a Victorian building that was built in 1887, a space for the catering school students that is both elegant and functional.
During these projects, as is case with all our projects, we were attentive to our clients’ specific needs and expectations. We have completed projects in centuries-old buildings by executing temporary works without compromising the quality of life of those who continue to use the buildings.
