The Construction Source

All the best, The Editorial Team We will keep adding business units that enhance our offering and separate us from our competition. “ ” Editor From The Dear Reader, Welcome to the latest issue of Construction Source Canada, the magazine that highlights the best in building and building products across the country. In this edition, we’ve cast our gaze all across the country, and we’ve looked at some of the builders and architects that are leading the way in their respective regions. On our cover, for instance, is Beljan Development. They are an Edmonton developer behind some of the city’s most interesting and unique adaptive re-use projects. We spoke to some of their leaders – including Chris Dulaba, Placemaker and Dave Hennessey, Asset Management – about their love for the city, about their most impactful projects to date, and about their vision for the future. Also in this issue is LEMAYMICHAUD – one of the most renowned design and architecture firms in Quebec. They have been operating in the province for over 40 years, and have been involved in a long list of high-profile, highly-impactful projects. In recent years, in particular, they have been a key member of the team behind the planning and design of Montreal’s up-andcoming, highly-sustainable Pointe-Nord Community. To tell the story of Pointe-Nord, we spoke with Pierre Mierski, Senior Partner. We talked about the company’s history in the community and their successful long-term relationship with developer Proment Corporation. We also talked in-depth about the Evolo series of high-rises in the community, and the “insideout” design philosophy that has made them so unique. Meanwhile, other companies featured in this edition include Manitoba-based Jilmark Construction and B.C.-based Billard Architecture. They are also contemporary leaders in their field, and they are also involved in projects in projects are shaping their communities. We spoke to their leaders about some of those projects. To read those stories – and more like them, about other industry leaders from across the country – just keep flipping the pages.
