The City of Montreal's management service mandated LEM as a construction manager for the construction of an indoor pool building adjacent to the Jean-Claude-Malépart community centre.
The swimming pool features six 25-meter corridors, a paddling pool which has a capacity of 40 children, a water play area, an exercise room and changing rooms.
Designed with the objective of obtaining an official LEED-NC certification, this project was guided by the Canada Green Building Council's Green Buildings Policy.
This project features the following LEED elements :
- decontamination of the site;
- management of construction waste;
- use of recycled materials;
- monitoring of air quality during construction;
- installation of low flow toilets and taps;
- installation of energy efficient windows;
- heat recovery mecanical system;
- low energy lighting system;
- reflective and green roofing;
- use of locally produced materials.
The City of Montreal initially explored the possibility of realising this project in a public-private partnership (PPP). However, since the submitted prices largely exceeded the allowed budget, the city decided to go with a project manager.
