New offices in Sainte-Foy
2009-2010/Sainte-Foy (Québec)/3,200 m2/34,500 ft2
Construction of an innovative 3,200 m², high-energy efficient building with a wooden structure, built to meet LEED-NC Gold certification standards. PAGEAU MOREL was able to remarkably integrate many state-of-the-art technologies in an avant-garde wooden structure, complete with interactive spaces (atrium)! Geothermal energy, hot and cold radiating tiles, intelligent natural and artificial lighting, natural ventilation controlled by a weather station, active cooling beams, and rainwater recovery systems were combined in an efficient and appropriate way.
Thus, thanks to a combination of various technologies, GSK’s new office building has outperformed by 52 % versus a comparable building and received its LEED-NC Gold certification in March 2013!
