Fast-track construction of a hotel with construction management

Project description

Construction of a 23-storey, 350-room hotel complex adjacent to the Casino du Lac-Leamy. The hotel contains an upscale 1000-seat concert hall (NC-25), a state-of-the-art convention centre, a complete kitchen, two presidential suites, a complete spa, two pools, a gym, an upscale restaurant, two bars with adjacent lounges, foyer, boutiques, cafe, etc. During the hotel’s construction, the Casino’s play area was expanded over a third of its area for additional slot machines, gambling tables, and rest areas.

Challenges and Solutions

  • Project realized in consortium for mechanical and electrical engineering.
  • Construction work divides in many phases and conducted over many months, in construction management.
  • During the hotel’s construction, the casino’s installations had to be kept operational. Over 15 different contractors were supervised in order to respect the tender documents.
  • Different measures were implemented during the installation of the thermal power plant on the roof ensuring the acoustic comfort of occupants living right underneath it. Transfer fluids (heating and cooling) in the entire complex are supplied from this thermal plant.
