(TLN) With only a few weeks left before construction work starts on Laval’s new aquatic complex, the city is inviting residents to drop by city hall to view an exhibition showing plans developed by four architectural competition finalists – including a 3D model of plans by the winning architectural firm.
“While taking in the exhibition, I have been able to see up to what point the competition was able to bring together so many talented experts so that we might be able to offer Laval residents an exceptional facility that they’ll want to go to and that they’ll be proud of,” says Mayor Marc Demers.
Chosen from four finalists
The City of Laval launched the architectural competition for the aquatic complex in 2016. Following a rigorous selection process four finalists were chosen who made public presentations before a jury. In the end, the NFOE-HCMA consortium was chosen as the winner in January 2017.
The aquatic complex is going to be located on Terry Fox Ave. in the north-west sector of Laval’s downtown area. The area is already well-known for its diverse facilities dedicated to scientific as well as cultural purposes. The aquatic complex is expected to be completed in 2020 when Laval will be hosting the finals of the Jeux du Québec that year.
