Although the development phase of this project took a long time -- five years – the final decision required construction of the building’s four levels in 210 days (seven months), from foundations to acceptance !

The challenge was taken up, and successfully accomplished through the extensive use of components prefabricated off-site, thus ensuring irreproachable quality of the exterior structure and meeting a restrictive timetable, as well as through the remarkable work of the companies involved.

The client's request to create a simple, functional and economic building was respected. The rigor in the use of materials, the efficiency of the building grid, and the constructive design all resulted in a high level of quality and reliability at a very moderate price.
