Art Museum of Joliette
Description of the project
Due to lack of space, the museum could no longer fulfill its mission. New volumes were added to allow for social and cultural events and thus open the museum to the community with both indoor and outdoor spaces.
The new spaces were designed in a refined architecture: two temporary exhibition rooms, a double-height entrance hall, a creation room with three curtain walls, and an outdoor terrace. It was important for each of these spaces that the integration of the infrastructures for museum services be discreet and harmonious.

Our involvement was complete and total from the first sketches to the final delivery of the project. In collaboration with the architect, the engineers and the museum, we conceptualized the various temporary exhibition spaces, the entrance hall, the creation room, the technical and common areas and the outdoor terrace. Our expertise was useful to the architect in the production of his plans and specifications for the wrought metals involved in the hanging structures. We produced the plans and specifications for the acquisition and installation of multimedia and museum equipment. We also followed up on the work by assisting other professionals in validating the work of the general contractor for the museum infrastructures as well as ensuring the follow-up of the work of the multimedia contractor.
