On going

Inspired by Laurentian architecture, Cardin Julien proposes a new wood-frame building that is bright and open to its exterior environment. Taking advantage of the natural topography of the site, the firm proposes a fluid layout of the city hall by using the existing ground levels to reduce the amount of building materials while maximizing the insulation through the floor.

The construction of a new City Hall will address various deficiencies of the existing building, including citizen privacy, accessibility for the mobility impaired, and public health and safety concerns. The building includes offices, a conference room, a council chamber that can accommodate 50 people, a file room and a reception area with a waiting room. The interior of the boardroom, archive room and wifi area will be completed in a second phase of construction.
