With its 30,000 employees, Provigo is the largest food retailer in Quebec, along with Maxi and Loblaws, its main banners. Pomerleau was mandated as Construction Manager to build Provigo's new head office.
The project consisted of the construction of three buildings each with three above-ground storeys and connected by two atria, for a total surface area of 30,000 m2. The project also included a 12,000-m2 underground parking garage with space for 700 vehicules over two levels.
The envelopes of these buildings feature brick and curtain walls. Inside are:
- A large cafeteria; and
- Two magnificent atria, 22 m long with a 3-m clearance.
Green building elements were integrated in this construction project (abundant natural lighting, heat recovery, numerous landscaped areas, the use of multiple energy sources), which translate into significant long-term added value for the client.
