Services prior to construction

Whether you have a general idea or a well-defined project, we can assist you.

What is the building potential of a piece of land? How many apartments or condos can you build? What type of project will be accepted by the City? What construction budget should you prepare for? Trust us in defining for you the regulatory requirements, the site planning potential, the preparation of permit or minor derogation applications, and the estimation of the construction cost.

Our designers will then take over to conceive durable and contextual buildings. Our interiors are always harmonized with the buildings we design!

You are finally ready to put out a call for tenders with our technical support. We will analyse the tenders received and the guarantees offered to you by the bidders, so you can make the best possible choice of General Contractor.
