  • NEW ROOF FOR THE MONTRÉAL OLYMPIC STADIUM - REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATION FOR THE DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, FINANCING AND MAINTENANCE

    18 October 2019

    REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATION FOR THE DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, FINANCING AND MAINTENANCE OF THE NEW ROOF FOR THE MONTRÉAL OLYMPIC STADIUM

    The Régie des installations olympiques (the “Régie”) is launching an international request for qualification for the selection of candidates to carry out the work to replace the roof of the Montréal Olympic Stadium, using a “design, build, finance and maintain” approach.

    The aim of the project is to replace the roof of the Montréal Olympic Stadium to ensure its safety and reliability and to allow the Olympic Stadium to achieve its full potential as a year-round venue for events. The project also aims to preserve the heritage character of the Olympic Stadium, one of Québec’s great architectural monuments. For this reason, the project must be implemented in a way that ensures respect for, and the safety of, the existing Olympic Stadium structure, respect for the environment, and the safety of Stadium occupants. The project meets the government’s priorities for asset maintenance and investment in infrastructures used for sports, recreation, tourism and events. It is important to note that the Olympic Stadium was designed by its architect, Roger Taillibert, to be covered in order to protect its structure and systems from the harsh Montréal winter.

    An information session and site visit is foreseen.

    Deadline: Wednesday, January 29 2020, at 11:00 am.
