Completion of the construction and redevelopment of John Abbott College’s library was a true technical challenge as it is a historic building with heritage character. Integration with the existing architecture was vital while modernizing the four levels of this imposing library to make it quickly accessible to some 7 000 students.

The main work consisted of revamping the structure of the establishment, adding an extension, and installing new facilities (elevator, air conditioning system, sprinkler system). This type of work often required the use of temporary reinforcements and supports.

The team demonstrated professionalism and thoroughness while carrying out this large-scale project.
