Large-scale “turnkey” project delivered in less than 28 months. Awarded the 2015 Canada BIM Council CanBIM Innovation Prize, this community gathering place allows people to engage in ice sports thanks to its two ice rinks, one of which is Olympic-sized, and to enjoy cultural events in its multi-purpose hall. This smart building has more than 10,000 seats, and can be converted into an auditorium or a convention centre.
gbi’s role in this major project resembled Place Bell’s vocation as a community gathering place in that the firm managed schedule coordination for the various participants, such as architects, engineers, contractors, surveyors, the City of Laval, etc.
This project required the design of sewer, water and public utility retention; a feasibility study; and the integration of the project on a site with an uneven topography, all in close collaboration with the City of Laval’s engineering and licensing departments.
gbi worked on the following project phases: topographical surveys of infrastructure; preliminary studies; concept and preliminary designs; final plans and specifications; construction supervision; and infrastructure integration assistance.
