University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre (CRCHUM)
2010-2013 /Montréal (Québec) /70,000 m2/750,000 ft2
As a member of the ACCÈS RECHERCHE MONTRÉAL team, PAGEAU MOREL is carrying out the project for the new research centre in a public-private partnership model. This new 70,000 m² research centre is aiming for a LEED Silver certification and includes a 7,000 m² animal facility, laboratories (two of which have a level 3 containment requirement), clinical research and training areas, as well as office spaces.
The research centre will become a unique presence in Canada and will be prominently positioned as elite and avant-garde on the international arena. The research centre’s design must also take into consideration the emerging trends in healthcare academic research centres.
PAGEAU MOREL, in consortium with two other firms, participated in revising and validating the PFT, and producing definitive plans and specifications for the new research centre. Construction started in April 2010 and will finish in March 2013. Commissioning will be completed in September 2013.
Under the leadership of Claude Giguère, PAGEAU MOREL participated in the LEED certification during multidisciplinary meetings and during the preparation of plans and specifications.
