Buildings & Facilities

Buildings & Facilities

We are the critical thinkers who design solutions to solve your most complex challenges, so that together we can provide the essential buildings and facilities where people work, play and live.

Our team consistently helps clients from all sectors shape their vision and then delivers the innovation required to realize it. We use our decades of experience around the world designing, operating and maintaining buildings of all types and sizes to benefit all of our clients. And our relationships with them are as solid as the buildings we collaborate on.

Our vast portfolio ranges from commercial, healthcare, schools and cultural, to biotechnology and defence. We bring the same precision and attention to detail to every project, whether designing a brand new university science complex, or consulting on a minor upgrade to an elementary school. And our suite of advanced digital tools complements much of our work.

We welcome the responsibility to deliver safe, sustainable and enduring buildings that serve our communities now and for generations to come. The solutions we craft for your buildings and facilities lead to something meaningful, so being asked to find those solutions is always a privilege. Seeing children in a classroom or doctors in a hospital is our reward. 

Multi-disciplinary, multi-sector expertise

From new constructions to upgrades and expansions—we design, operate and maintain buildings of all sizes and types, and across all sectors. Our portfolio includes projects for commercialresidential buildings and facilities dedicated to healthcareeducation, public transportation, defencepharmaceutical and biotechnologyfood and beverage, and municipal infrastructure.

Thanks to the broad reach of SNC-Lavalin’s services, we provide a one-stop shop that brings together experts from all building technical disciplines namely mechanical, electrical, structural and civil engineering with excellent insight into the specific challenges of each market. This allows us to deliver state-of-the-art solutions that meet all design, budget, schedule and regulatory criteria.  

Sustainable design 

Energy efficiency, waste management and emissions control are essential considerations in everything we do. To date, we have completed more than 70 LEED-certified projects in Canada alone, and our accredited professionals always strive to develop innovative facilities that protect the environment and enhance the well-being of occupants. We offer cost-effective solutions to meet increasingly demanding energy acts, codes and regulations, as well as sustainable building rating systems or very high energy performance objectives. 

Innovative solutions 

We understand the contribution of building design excellence and innovation to our client’s success. Our expertise and design innovation is showcased in the design and construction of the Maison symphonique de Montréal, which achieved noise criteria N1, ensuring that the background noise and vibration from a busy urban environment in the concert hall is not audible to the concert-goer.

We have a proven track record in using emerging building information modeling (BIM) technologies, which allow our teams and clients to better plan and manage built assets. Our experience with BIM includes complex and large-scale projects, such as the McGill University Health Centre  and Sainte-Justine Health Centre in Montreal and the Maintenance Hangar Development Program at Canadian Forces Base in Trenton

In all cases, we are dedicated to delivering high-performance building systems while achieving our client’s architectural, functional and business objectives.
