The choice of delivery methods matters

At Pomerleau, we believe that the choice of a project's delivery method involves peculiarities that must be aligned with the client's objectives. The Design-Build and Public Private Partnership (P3) modes, for example, favor the success of projects in accelerated mode. The Sorel-Tracy Detention Centre is proof of this. Winner of an award for its design, this high-security centre that accommodates up to 300 inmates was a challenge that Pomerleau was able to meet.

BIM-VDC (Building Information Modeling - Virtual Design and Construction) has made it possible to merge all disciplines into a single 3D model and integrate every building features into every detail. The team was able to ensure the required safety components were met as the design evolved.

The schedule was also ambitious: deliver a project with a gross area of ​​23,600 m2 in 32 months. Fully living by its innovation value, Pomerleau relied on factory-built prefabricated units that were delivered on site and included architectural finishes, saving a considerable amount of time.

Lastly, the LEED® Canada New Construction (NC) certification project has exceeded its sustainable development goals and received LEED® Silver certification.
