We have just received the news that we obtained the highest score in the SQI Selection Committee Review which recommended our consortium (ABCP/ Architecture49/ DFS) for the procurement of architectural services for the Gérard-D.-Levesque Building located 12 Louis St, QC.

This edifice, influenced by the Second Empire and built between 1883 and 1887, is listed on the Cultural Heritage Register and is a prestigious and large scope project. A recent article was published about it on the CBC website (May 17th, 2019).
