Project Type: Institutional Projects
Gératek has carried out a significant number of projects in the institutional sector. Based on our extensive involvement in this sector, we can guarantee we will be able to meet or exceed your requirements.
A major project for Gératek, building the Toshiba room presented many challenges. The team strived to generate as little dirt as possible to keep within the hygiene standards of a health care venue.
Nothing was left to chance in working-out this innovative sports complex. Built to answer eco-energetic concerns and to ensure user and spectator comfort, the construction benefitted from Gératek’s rigourous management methods.
Gératek took up the challenge of integrating this four-story building at the heart of the Société de transport de Sherbrooke bus terminal while fitting into the City’s urban development plan. The team managed to work in restricted space and ensure safety for workers and passersby.
The circular roof presented quite a challenge and brought the Gératek team to a different way of doing things. The building was constructed following LEED standards, and a maximum of local materials were used.
Gératek was responsible for part of this major project, and made sure that moving the existing laudry to a new venue went smoothly. A veritable plant on the hospital grounds, the new CHUS laundry is fitted with highly specialized equipment.
On the one hand, the building had to meet strict norms and, on the other had, be both comfortable and fuctional. As well as regrouping under one roof all the installations needed for ambulance personnel, the building houses a powerful generator to ensure its autonomy.
