Ville de Montréal
Père-Marquette, Pierre « Pete » Morin and Martin-Brodeur Arenas

2010-2012/Montréal (Québec)

Arena upgrade

Project description

Upgrade of three arenas for the City of Montréal including the renovation of all HVAC systems to maximize energy recovery and energy efficiency of installations.
These projects were implemented in integrated design with partners for architecture, structural engineering and refrigeration systems. These projects are also aiming for a LEED certification.
The Père-Marquette and Martin-Brodeur arenas required the expansion of the existing building to accommodate an ammonia refrigeration system housed in a new mechanical room.

Challenges and Solutions

  • Demolition of existing refrigeration system.
  • Works related to energy savings: installing a reflective sheet above the ice rink, replacing light fixtures, upgrading controls, etc.
  • Universal accessibility: installing automatic doors and modifying washrooms.
  • Adding a heating system under the slab of ice to allow year-round use (Père-Marquette) – heating the pool with recovered hot water from the new refrigeration system, etc.
  • Aiming for LEED Silver certification.
