Turning Ideas into Action
Reaching the highest level of LEED certification, Platinum, is an exceptional achievement. Part of what makes the Technopôle Angus project stand out is the team’s dedication and involvement, along with its integrated design process. In addition to creating jobs, providing affordable housing and new public spaces, the project focuses on diversity and density to finance its eco-friendly infrastructures.
The eco-district was born of the Société de développement Angus’ drive to push the limits of responsible urban revitalization. It was designed in partnership with the multidisciplinary firm Provencher_Roy, NIP Paysage, Vinci Consultants and Pageau Morel & Associates.
