Centre culturel de Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (NDG)

2010-2016/Montréal (Québec)/4,500 m2/48,440 ft2

New LEED construction (integrated design)

Project description

Construction of the new 4,500 m² cultural centre in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce including a 200-seat hall, a multifunctional room for exhibits, and a library. The multipurpose hall and room are meant to become an important cultural centre and a particularly solicited service in this area of the city. Therefore, the design of electromechanical systems had to allow versatility of use for these spaces all the while ensuring simplicity and efficiency to minimize operational and maintenance costs.

Challenges and Solutions

  • LEED Canada NC 1.0 Silver certification received in March 2017.
  • Special attention paid to the quality of the indoor environment--especially concerning the air quality, thermal comfort and acoustics--which guided the choice of mechanical systems and the overall design of the building while meeting a very tight construction budget.
  • Close collaboration between all professionals early in the design process during the contest (integration design with partners).
