CHU Sainte-Justine's Growing Up Healthy major modernization project comprised construction of new buildings designed and built by SNC-Lavalin: A special care unit, the research centre, a vast atrium, two large auditoriums, walkways to the existing structure and a playful landscape architecture.
In continuity with Mont-Royal's landscape NIP Paysage designed the vegetated walkways and play areas. To cheer up the children, as much as possible, vivid colors omnipresent in the hospital interiors were used.
Carpell Surfaces supplied and installed the surfacing for the newly constructed North Esplanade rooftop walkway and play area as well as for the playground located near the Main Entrance, Chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine.
A bright and cheerful playground greets the kids and their families at the hospital's Main Entrance. The complex configuration, linear design and sloping terrain of the North Esplanade rooftop walkway presented some challenges for our installers. However, we can say with pride, the project is a complete success.
