When Pomerleau, one of Canada’s leading construction companies, commissioned its regional offices in Lévis, Quebec, it presented a design challenge with a site that is located between a busy highway and pristine forests. Fortunately, there was no limitation on choice of materials. The result is a unique, light-filled design featuring mass timber. But it also features polished concrete flooring, plate steel furniture, and railings. Mass timber components unify the interior and exterior with the surrounding forests. Natural pine in ceiling and roof elements is exposed, creating warmth. The building’s three wings each have stunning forest views, improving wellness and productivity of the office staff. Large, fully glazed windows in meeting rooms and the dining area face onto an intimate courtyard with the forest just beyond.
