We built the second and final phase of the CHUM in downtown Montreal in a design-build mode. The project included the construction of two new pavilions with a surface area of 18,000 m² each and a 31,600 m² underground parking lot that contains five floors for 852 vehicles and 214 bicycles.
The first 18-storey pavilion is an extension of a pavilion built in the first phase, and it includes new reception areas, outpatient clinics, offices, and medical archives. The second pavilion, which is 16 floors high, has a two-story library, public and patient areas, a coffee corner, an idearium (a place to foster ideas and problem solve), a youth area, a lounge, open work areas, a study, and training rooms.
The Pierre-Péladeau Amphitheatre, the jewel in the crown of the final phase of the new CHUM, was named the winner of the 2022 North American Copper in Architecture Awards, a program from the Copper Development Association Inc. that recognizes and promotes the outstanding application of copper architectural alloys.
The work was completed with a strict budget and was delivered on a tight schedule, despite all the constraints caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This phase of the project aims for a LEED Silver certification.
