La Promenade Building

Painstaking attention to detail

Beaubois is literally turning its hand to the fitting up of offices for Members of the federal Parliament, manually crafting the veneers for the frames and doors on the 12 floors, a practice rarely seen in the industry today.

Given that a number of hardwoods are being used, Beaubois made the decision to hand-craft these items to ensure that the wood grains blend perfectly. A polyurethane finish will not only enhance the resistance of the veneers but also give them an elegant appearance.

The walls and acoustic ceilings will also bear the Beaubois seal and, as nothing is being left to chance, the company will also produce the panels that will mask the radiators, making them less visible to users and visitors.

As security is a major concern for the client and the companies involved in this project, inspections are conducted at each phase. There will be bullet-proof elements within the building and all the doors will be equipped with access-control devices.

Constructed in 1972 and now at the end of its life cycle, the Sparks Street building is undergoing a major rehabilitation. Everything is being upgraded, right down to the mechanical and electrical systems.

The new spaces have been designed to meet the short and long-term operational and functional needs of Parliament. Once this rehabilitation is complete, the La Promenade Building will welcome 62 Members of Parliament and provide three committee rooms.
