Le Groupe Jenaco is part of a team of specialized contractors who will be working on the enlargement of the Baie-Saint-François school, located in Valleyfield. This geothermal and plumbing contract will allow the Saint-Hubert company to once again showcase its expertise in the institutional sector, where it has already successfully participated in several projects involving schools and seniors’ homes.

When this project was officially announced last October, officials noted that there were two projects that would be carried out simultaneously: the expansion of the gymnasiums and the addition of classes and spaces for various purposes. It is estimated that project will cost $57 million and the work should continue for two years.

“We are very happy to be working again with the general contractor Construction Socam Ltée and to make our contribution in geothermal energy and plumbing,” said Jean Turgeon, founder and president of Le Groupe Jenaco. “Execution of this work will improve the users’ quality of life. It will also contribute to energy transition and climate change mitigation.”

When this vast project is concluded, the Baie-Saint-François school in the Vallée-des-Tisserands Centre de services scolaire will increase its capacity by 700 places in addition to offering spaces for adapted clientele, a double gymnasium, and a glass-enclosed weight room.

The building mechanics company, which specializes in piping, has already dispatched a team, which could, at times, consist of up to six pipefitters, to work on this contract.
