McGill University Health Centre (MUHC)

Beaubois is part of the prestigious McGill University Health Centre (MUHC)

Ébénisterie Beaubois obtained its largest contract in Québec as part of the construction of this new centre, the building of which required an investment of $1.3 billion. The architectural woodworking specialist also has a second mandate to fit up the MUHC research centre, located on the Glen Campus too.

Associated with the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University, the MUHC is an integrated university hospital centre recognized internationally for the excellence of its care, research and teaching. The partner hospitals-the Montreal Children's Hospital, the Montreal General Hospital, the Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal Neurological Institute, the Montreal Chest Insitute and the Lachine Hospital-encourage a multidisciplinary approach for patients of all ages, innovative techniques and practices, strategic partnerships and leadership in the transference of knowledge.

In total, the Glen Campus complex will have a surface area of 3 229 220 sq. ft, 154 single rooms for children, 346 rooms for adults with a private bathroom and spaces set aside for family and friends. The research centre will have $190M worth of leading-edge equipment and technologies, ultramodern data systems and the most recent generation of telecommunications networks.

When they arrive at the University Centre, visitors and patients will be greeted at one of the 190 security and reception stations that will be fabricated by Beaubois. These include the elliptical shaped Oncology Department reception station that will integrate several types of materials. The firm will also supply an extraordinary number of cabinets (11 000), cupboards, changing rooms and vanities covered in Beaubois' exclusive solid surface. In the Research Centre, the company will be responsible for the security desk, cabinets and cupboards, vanities and changing rooms.

Already a leader in energy-efficient management of its buildings and holder of numerous environmental certifications, the MUHC decided to design and operate its new facilities in accordance with LEED Silver standards, an international reference in sustainable development. LEED requirements are part of Beaubois' standards and the firm has been involved in building green projects in Canada and the United States for nearly 15 years.
