The building mechanics firm Le Groupe Jenaco will be part of another special project by providing its expertise in heating and storm drainage to the construction of the footbridge linking the Royalmount complex to the De la Savane metro station. This steel structure will span the Décarie Expressway.

Just over 200 meters long, this footbridge will be spectacular, especially as its open design will provide lots of outdoor light. The promoter Carbonleo wants this pedestrian crossing, adapted for people with reduced mobility, to provide public transportation users with a pleasant and safe experience. It will make it easier for them to access the Royalmount complex, located at the corner of highways 15 and 40.

“Being awarded this contract confirms the solid expertise of our team in the various phases of a project. This time, our team of 3D designers will be mainly involved. The team will also help plan the work of the two pipefitters we have assigned to this project,” said Jean Turgeon, founder and president of Le Groupe Jenaco.

The entire project will cost $25 million. It should be completed by March 2024. The promoter has retained the professional services of renowned firms. The role of general contractor has been entrusted to the consortium Magil and Tisseur, the first is recognized as a specialist in the construction of buildings, while the second, is a master of the construction of infrastructures and works of art.

The firms Bouthillette Parizeau (structural engineer), gbi (civil engineering + mechanics, electricity, and plumbing), Sid Lee Architecture (architecture), and Version Paysage (landscape architecture) complete the team of professionals involved in this project.

The human resources of the building mechanics firm, specializing in piping, will begin their work soon.
