gbi participated in beautifying the former industrial neighborhood, located between Old Montreal and the downtown area, with the construction of several multi-use buildings, as part of the Griffintown real estate development project. In fact, since 2009, gbi’s teams have provided multidisciplinary services in mechanical, electrical, civil and structural engineering on behalf of DEVIMCO.
This project brought its share of complexities due to its location. Our teams had to use a temporary retaining system for the excavation because of the presence of a river and a stream in the third underground level. They also paid particular attention to the underpinning systems, given that the excavation was being done near a very vulnerable building dating back to 1920.
Located on Wellington Street, between Murray and Young Streets, this major project adjoins the District sur l’Eau project. Block 9A offers 257 rental apartments in an L-shaped configuration formed by two towers, one with 14 storeys, the other with 9.
