Preserving the
built heritage

One of the biggest challenges of the MAA Condominiums & Penthouses project is that of preserving the tremendous heritage value of the existing building’s façade. The revitalization process involves taking into account numerous restrictions brought about by the limited space available to us, especially when working on the street-facing retaining walls.

Indeed, the project is located on one of the most important arteries of the city centre, both for pedestrians and vehicles, and has complex and restricted access.

“The architecture and construction teams had to be very versatile when designing and carrying out the project.” Mathieu Côté, M. Ing., PA LEED C+CB, Structural Engineer, Research and Development at ELEMA.

Therefore, we have designed a 40-feet high steel structure that supports the façade and allows us to circulate and set up storage units and construction trailers.

“This creative and unique structure is a work of art in itself. It supports the façade while allowing the construction works to continue.” Omar Waedh, PMP, MBA. Project Director at Edyfic Construction.
