With the Cité Midtown project, Le Groupe Jenaco will be at the forefront of the construction of Phase 1 of one of the first LEED ND neighbourhoods in Québec. The building mechanics company, specializing in piping, has obtained the plumbing and gas contract for this phase, comprising 210 condos on eight floors. This major project will provide 900 housing units when it is completed.
“It’s very exciting to be able to contribute to innovative sustainable development projects. Our expertise in LEED certification and our internal processes are major assets for this type of project,” said Jean Turgeon, founder and president of Le Groupe Jenaco.
Cité Midtown is the result of a concept developed over several years by architects—including NEUF Architectes—engineers, and visionary developers to create a modern community open to pedestrians. Located between the Saint-Laurent borough in the north and the new Royalmount ™ sector in the south, this 5.2 hectare neighbourhood is made up of medium-sized mixed-use buildings.
The concept of the LEED ND certified neighbourhood, defended by Toronto developer Urban Capital, is designed for the well-being of its residents. It includes pedestrian streets, public spaces, and many housing choices to promote diversity and intergenerational interactions.
“This is our first collaboration with this Toronto promoter. We are pleased to be able to demonstrate the positive impact of our collaborative approach and our expertise,” said the founder and president of Le Groupe Jenaco.
The Cité Midtown project is under the supervision of Groupe Construction Reliance, a general contractor with which the Saint-Hubert building mechanics firm has previously carried out numerous projects. A team of approximately 15 employees has been assigned to Phase 1 of this project which should be finished by June 2021.
