Devimco team installs highrise skybridge in Montreal

Devimco team installs highrise skybridge in Montreal
DEVIMCO—The installation of a 125,000-pound skybridge at Montreal’s Maestria Condominiums project was executed by a team that included NCK, Lemay, RJC Ingenierie, Sofab and Edyfic Construction.

MONTREAL—Montreal’s Maestria Condominiums project has reached a milestone with the successful hoisting and installation of the highest suspended skybridge joining two residential buildings ever built in the province.

The structure will eventually connect the 58- and 61-storey towers of Quebec’s largest-ever mixed-use residential megaproject, at the 26th and 27th floors respectively, stated a recent release.

The project is a partnership of Groupe Devimco, the Fonds immobilier de solidarite FTQ and Fiera Real Estate. The site is on Sainte-Catherine Street West.

The operation, executed in collaboration with NCK, Lemay, RJC Ingenierie, Sofab and Edyfic Construction, took 1,500 person-hours to complete over a two-week period and involved more than 100 workers. The walkway weighs 125,000 pounds.

The skybridge will connect more than 40,000 square feet of common areas in the towers, including 2,915 square feet on the 26th floor. The $730-million project, being built in two phases, will feature 700 rental apartments and 1,042 condominium units.

“We are especially proud of today’s operation,” said James Goulet, vice-president of acquisitions and development with Groupe Devimco, in a statement. “The Maestria Condominiums project attests to Groupe Devimco’s innovative vision for developing downtown Montreal and amplifying the arts and culture showcase that is the Quartier des spectacles.”
