Le Groupe Jenaco’s expertise in high-rise buildings will be put to good use in the construction of the National Bank’s future head office. This 40-story building will be the largest office tower built in downtown Montréal in the past 25 years. The building mechanics firm, specializing in piping, has obtained the plumbing contract which includes drainage, sanitation, rainwater runoff, drinking water, and the oil network.
“We are especially proud to be part of this major National Bank project, managed by the general contractor Broccolini with whom we have worked in the past. The scale of this office tower poses a constant challenge for all of the partners involved,” said Jean Turgeon, founder and president of Le Groupe Jenaco.
A proponent of the collaborative approach in the construction industry, Jean Turgeon insists on the importance of such an approach in this type of project. “The scale of this National Bank head office project, which includes the high standards of LEED v4 Gold and WELL certification, places enormous demands on all facets of the work.”
The collaborative mode encourages communication, transparency, mutual aid, and knowledge sharing between stakeholders to achieve the ultimate goal sought: total client satisfaction and a sense of duty accomplished for all the stakeholders. In a context where the most recent building of its kind (26 floors) was built five years ago, it becomes important to pool resources.
The plumbing work has already started and should end in July 2023. A team of about twenty people has been assigned to the contract.
