The enlargement and modernization of the Montréal-Trudeau International Airport began in 1999 and wass divided into 3 phases, the last of which will be completed in 2009.

Pomerleau is one of the partners working to make this a world-class facility, where the needs of business and vacation travellers are met with style, comfort and efficiency. This team has distinguished itself by proactively seeking and finding alternatives that resulted in substantial savings in the first phase.

The Pomerleau team has developed an excellent working relationship with the various stakeholders.  It has also proven its ability to deal with the challenges of moving numerous aviation services and existing facilities and performing major construction work while the airport continues to deliver uninterrupted service to both the travelling public and the airlines.
