We are happy to announce that two architect directors, Catherine Demers and Martine Gévry, will join the executive team of Jodoin Lamarre Pratte architectes along Alain Boudrias, Michel Broz, Sylvain Morrier and Nicolas Ranger.
Catherine Demers, architect AP LEED BD+C
Working for the firm since 2002 and promoted director in 2015, Catherine Demers has gained solid professional experience through the development of projects of varying sizes in the institutional and transportation fields. Involved in both the definition of client’s needs in the preconceptual phases and in the execution of final plans and specifications, she also has experience in construction implementation. Therefore, she has an all-around understanding of a project’s stakes which allows her to steer and coordinate the work of a multidisciplinary team involving several parties: architects, engineers, consultants and contractors. Aware of the non-negligible impact of the construction industry on environmental issues, this enthusiastic architect shows a keen interest for sustainable development and has been a LEED BD+C accredited professional since 2009.
From 2012 to 2015, she worked within the STM Bureau de Projet Infrastructure Métro (BPIM) where she managed a project team for the renovation of metro stations and rail transportation infrastructure. Since 2015 she has mainly been working on major modernization, retrofit and expansion projects for the Montreal-Trudeau International Airport. Among these, the new connection centre for transiting passengers and the future Réseau Express Métropolitain (REM) station, which are part of the Aéroports de Montréal’s growth and future vision strategic plan.
Martine Gévry, architect AP LEED
A director since 2013 and with the firm since 2002, the architect Martine Gévry is mainly dedicated to the definition of major projects in the field of health but also teaching and research. From the very first steps of any project, Martine promotes continuous improvement, asserts her leadership and ensures an all-around understanding of all stakes, facilitating communication between specialized parties through efficient coordination. What sets her apart is her desire to conceive projects with an overall vision, which gives equal importance to functional, operational, innovative, architectural and well-being aspects. On top of her availability and her consulting expertise, she uses her analytic skills to recommend sustainable and tailor-made solutions, according to the needs expressed by the project’s stakeholders. Her diligence ensures thorough project tracking, regarding a project’s quality requirements, with its challenges and constraints, as well as its opportunities and respect of the established budget and schedule.
Among her major and recent projects are the last phase of the new CHUM in downtown-Montreal, the major expansion and retrofit of the Montreal Heart Institute, the Functional and Technical Program (FTP) of the CHUS Hôpital Fleurimont Mother-and-Child Center and Emergency Department, the Clinical and Property Program and the Emergency Department’s FTP for CSSS Jeanne-Mance – Hôpital Notre-Dame, the FTP for the new pavilions of sciences, teaching and library of Université de Montréal, as well as the Critical Care Pavilion (K) at the Jewish General Hospital.
Michel Bourassa, architect and senior partner since 1996 and a member of the team since 1983 will leave the office at the end of the year for a well-deserved retirement. The entire team thanks you Michel, for your monumental contribution to the firm over the past 35 years.
