Nordic Institute of Quebec

Located on the University Laval campus in Quebec city, this scientific complex, set to be completed by 2026 with an investment of over $22 million from the Canadian and Quebec governments, will feature multiple cutting-edge laboratories focusing on significant research themes, including a logistics center for preparing maritime and land missions, and laboratories for simulating the extreme cold of the North.

Epsylon will realize the envelope of this new research facility, including 11 000 sq. ft. of preglazed, conventional and inclined curtain wall, as well as interior glazing and railings.

Vaudreuil-Soulanges Hospital

Construction work on Vaudreuil-Soulanges Hospital began in 2022, and will be completed in 2026. The health care centre will have two wings, a total of 132,340 m2 of space. It will offer 404 beds, an operating suite with 11 operating rooms, and an emergency room that can accommodate 41 stretchers. The project represents an overall investment of $2.6 billion.
Once it opens, Vaudreuil-Soulanges Hospital will provide local care and services for neighbouring communities, as well as specialized services for the entire population of the CISSS de la Montérégie-Ouest region. Pomerleau is leading the project, and Epsylon is delighted to be contributing to this remarkable new building that will be contemporary, welcoming and energy-efficient.

Laval Aquatic Complex

Epsylon is proud to participate in the development of these high-level facilities, the only ones of their kind in the Montréal North Shore area.

With a surface area of 11,400 m2, the aquatic complex will offer the people of Laval three indoor pools, including one for recreational use, one 50-meter semi-Olympic pool, a wading pool for small children and several other multi-use areas.

The construction work for the aquatic complex will be completed by fall 2024. The steel structure and envelope will be finished by the end of 2023, and fit-up of the building’s interior is currently underway.

Verdun Hospital

Verdun Hospital is being expanded and updated. Epsylon will be installing curtain walls and recessed windows over a surface area of 65,000 sq. ft. The project is designed to increase the total surface area of the premises by 60%, including the construction of new health care facilities.

The original building dates from the 1930s. Upon completion of the current project, it will be a modern, state-of-the-art health care centre. The project is LEED certified. It features a green roof, and materials and colours that highlight Verdun Hospital’s original art deco style while giving the facilities a contemporary look.

Le Sherbrooke

Le Sherbrooke is a real estate project led by Broccolini that is scheduled to be completed by 2025. It is located at the heart of Montréal’s Golden Square Mile, one of the city’s most sought-after, distinguished neighbourhoods.

Le Sherbrooke is a 25-storey building with 562 luxury residential units. Its timeless style features a streamlined exterior, graceful Epsylon materials, and vibrant, contemporary interiors. The list of services and equipment that will be installed on-site stirs the imagination and is sure to delight future residents.

Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu seniors’ home

The Maison des Aînés de Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu is located on land beside the Gertrude-Lafrance CHSLD (a residential and long-term care centre). The construction of an additional three floors, equipped as three separate units, adds 192 beds for increasingly dependent senior citizens.

This new concept in health care provides multiple services along with access to specialists, allowing residents to enjoy their latter years with dignity and respect. Epsylon is happy to have been chosen by the contractor, EBC, to participate in this institutional project.

Sainte-Foy seniors’ home

This seniors’ and alternative home is made up of eight living units with twelve beds each. 84 of those beds are reserved for senior citizens, while the remaining 12 are kept for adults with special needs.

This type of living situation is designed to feel more like home, mainly by offering a friendlier environment with indoor and outdoor areas that are specially adapted to the changing needs of residents and their loved ones, and being open to the community. The contractor, Pomerleau, chose Epsylon for this institutional project designed to improve quality of life for our most vulnerable populations.

ETS, Pavilion F

Epsylon was chosen by EBC for the construction of Pavilion F on the l’École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS) campus. The new building, located at the south end of the main pavilion on Rue William in Montréal, is six storeys tall and also has a basement. The building has a total surface area of over 13,000 m² with space for 2,375 students and staff members.

The project was begun in 2021, and includes nearly 30 classrooms, open learning areas, study rooms, offices for research centres and much more. Epsylon is happy to be contributing to a place of learning designed for the coming generations of ETS graduates.

Édifice Marly

Édifice Marly belongs to IA/Gestion Canderel Inc., and is the second largest office building in the Québec City region. It was erected in the heart of Boisé de Marly, a park in the Pointe-de-Sainte-Foy neighbourhood, and its distinctive architectural design makes it a stand-out feature of the capital’s urban landscape.

Renovations to the building envelope, carried out by Epsylon, are in line with construction on the Quebec Ministry of Revenue’s new processing centre for phase 2 of the project.

New Enfant-Jésus hospital

The long-debated mega-hospital project on the site of the Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus is making good progress. The new construction has a surface area of 174,983 m2 and a total cost of $2.24 billion. All work on the project is expected be completed by 2029.

Eventually, the new hospital complex will unite the Hotel-Dieu de Québec and the Enfant-Jésus Hospital in a single location. It will become a reference centre in Québec for all kinds of specialties, including nephrology (kidney disease), neurology (diseases of the nervous system), oncology (cancer), traumatology (physical injuries and serious accidents) and severe burns. Epsylon is proud to contribute to this public health project that puts patients and employees at the heart of its design.
