Sustainable development

Building means creating links between citizens. Our commitment to the communities in which we operate is therefore at the heart of our business. That's why we were one of the first construction companies to become a member of the Canada Green Building Council and have a growing number of LEED-registered projects to our credit. With our Borea Construction entity, we are also involved in the construction of wind farms across Canada.

We favour sustainable solutions. This goes hand in hand with our commitment to long-term, cost-effective projects that promote a better quality of life. Here's how:

  • We encourage practices that respect the environment and support environmentally-responsible subcontractors.
  • Whenever possible, we choose renewable materials and local products and we hire local labor.
  • We build with appreciation for the local community, minimizing construction impacts such as noise, dust, etc.
  • We cultivate a safe, healthy and collaborative workplace.

Our LEED®-accredited professionals accompany clients seeking certification. We help define sustainability goals, provide cost and feasibility data, and propose the most recent green building methods.

Many of Pomerleau's projects have obtained or are awaiting LEED® certification. We have also constructed several projects that have achieved or are seeking LEED® Platinum certification.
