A whole new image of the Val-Martin neighbourhood unveiled
A whole new image of the Val-Martin neighbourhood was unveiled at a press conference on August 25. Demolition of 130 houses begins in mid-September along with the restoration of existing buildings. As proud standard-bearer of the project, Ædifica’s architectural team will rebuild the area with quality housing that is energy efficient and sustainable.
This is good news for the neighbourhood and citizens of Laval, and our team, for whom the construction phases of Habitations Val-Martin is quickly approaching.
At the unveiling of Phase I, Executive Director of the City of Laval’s housing office Isabelle Pépin stated, “We want to provide quality, energy-efficient housing for a mixed clientele that includes families, people with disabilities, and everyone, really.”
The Mayor of Laval, Marc Demers, and Chomedey MNA, Guy Ouellette were on hand with municipal housing representatives for the official kickoff.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Val-Martin (IVM) project is part of five-area intervention plan targeted for urban renewal in the Chomedey neighborhood of the City of Laval. Phase I of the multi-phase project involves construction of 357 social housing units under two government programs (Accès Logis and Régénération) as well as the building of civic centre at the heart of the community. Ædifica’s mandate covers architectural design, sustainable development and project management, all of which will be implemented using an integrated design approach. Ædifica has been involved since the project’s inception, leading the way on sustainability planning, coordination and LEED certification during project design and construction.
