Private projects

Bricon carried out the excavation for the emergency building of the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM). The challenge of this project was to excavate in a confined space while ensuring sufficient vibration control to avoid affecting the adjacent Centre hospitalier St-Luc. With our expertise and specialized equipment, our team was able to rise to the challenge and dig deeper than 30 metres in some areas. A staggering amount of equipment was deployed to carry out this 89,000 m3 excavation using a tiered approach, all while respecting standards and deadlines. We are proud to have diligently – and efficiently – collaborated on the construction of this emergency wing.
