Budget : 2,24 G$

Schedule : 2017-2029

Client : Société québécoise des infrastructures

Role : Assistant Project Manager on the construction site

After many discussions, the construction project of the mega-hospital on the Enfant-Jésus site is progressing rapidly. The new constructions will cover a total area of 174,983 square meters, and the total project cost is estimated at 2.24 billion dollars. It is now expected that all the work will be completed by 2029.

Eventually, the new hospital complex will bring together the activities of L'Hôtel-Dieu de Québec and Hôpital de l'Enfant-Jésus on a single site. It will become a renowned center in Quebec for several specialties, including nephrology (treatment of kidney diseases), neurology (management of nervous system disorders), oncology (cancer treatment), traumatology (care for physical injuries and severe accidents), as well as the care of major burn victims. This new hospital center is a public health project that places the patient and the employee at the center of its design.

Role : Assistant Senior Designer

Verdun Hospital was founded in 1932 and is located in a rapidly developing area. Over the years, this public institution has become a reference in the medical field. In consortium with Norda Stelo, ELEMA was commissioned for the expansion and modernization project of Verdun Hospital, with the goal of enlarging and modernizing its facilities to better meet the needs of the growing and aging population in its territory. These works will undoubtedly enhance the reputation of this venerable hospital. This project will increase the total area of Verdun Hospital by nearly 50% and is defined by the addition of a new pavilion, an aerial walkway connecting the existing building to the new one, a reconfiguration of delivery docks, and finally, the addition of an atrium in the space currently occupied by the inner courtyards.

The future walkway will not only serve the physical connection between the old and the new, but it will also be used to create a new architectural facade animated by pedestrian traffic. It spans 5 stories in height and has an approximate length of 73 meters (240 feet). The first identified challenge in the project was the desire for transparency in the architectural facades, which led to the selection of structurally resilient frames. Secondly, the new walkway had to be structurally separated from the existing building to avoid seismic retrofitting of the existing pavilions, in accordance with the requirements of the Quebec Building Code.
As for the atrium, its purpose is to create a new living space by redefining an outdoor area that is currently underutilized. An elevator core connecting the new atrium to the existing floors will be added.

The project involves demolishing a load-bearing wall on the ground floor of a two-story building with a basement. This wall is offset from the basement, complicating the load transfer. To address this challenge, additional joists will be installed to safely redistribute the loads towards a new transfer beam. This intervention will ensure the structural stability of the building.

The services offered include a comprehensive structural assessment to determine the specific project requirements and the preparation of detailed plans to replace the load-bearing wall. Several options for the transfer beam are considered, including aesthetic and functional solutions such as a beam hidden in the ceiling or installed beneath the existing joists. These options will provide flexibility in terms of budget and complexity while ensuring high-quality finishing and optimal structural integrity.


Schedule : 2023

Role : Structural Consultant

The study involves the preparation of an expert report regarding the validation of the demolition of two walls. The main objective is to determine whether these walls serve as load-bearing structures or if they are merely partitions without structural support. A comprehensive evaluation of the walls and the underlying structure has been conducted using non-destructive tests and observations made during a site visit.


Schedule : 2024

Role : Structural consultant

The recent expertise report assesses fire damage to the ground floor and level 2 slabs of a residence located in Montreal. This detailed document meticulously examines the impacts on structural stability, providing clear recommendations for necessary repairs.

This project focuses on a detailed assessment of the condition of a garage slab. The resulting report aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the situation and to make specific recommendations to ensure the long-term preservation of the garage slab.

This structural expertise project aims to identify and resolve potential issues affecting the slab, ranging from reinforcement corrosion to cracks and concrete degradation. The ultimate goal is to ensure the stability and durability of the structure by implementing targeted preventive and corrective measures. The approach taken and the conclusions drawn from the report serve as a basis to guarantee the long-term integrity of the garage slab.


Schedule : 2024

Role : Structural consultant

The wall demolition project presents a unique structural challenge. The wall in question, despite being a simple partition, requires special attention due to the unconventional layout of the main load-bearing wall of the house. This load-bearing wall, which does not extend from one end to the other of the structure, deviates near the garage, creating additional complexity to ensure that the demolition of the partition wall does not affect the overall stability of the house.

The technical assessment will focus on the potential impact of the demolition on the structural loads, taking into account the deviation of the load-bearing wall. The goal is to provide a comprehensive expertise report confirming that the wall can be safely removed while ensuring the structural integrity of the property.
