Université de Sherbrooke Campus in Longueuil
The new campus of the Université de Sherbrooke in Longueuil is attached to the metro station, defining and crystallizing the development of a new city centre. Designed as an urban campus, the 40,000 square meter project is defined by a long commercial extension covered for the most part with green roofs for the use of employees and students, from which stands the university tower.

The multifunctional building houses a wide variety of university departments, including spaces for faculties of medicine, science, engineering, administration, law, humanities and philosophy. The interiors have been designed to maximize the penetration of natural light into the spaces, favoring open areas and offices with interior glass walls on the corridors, giving access to the external views to a maximum of users.
The building consists of 37 geothermal wells that allow for seasonal savings in heating or cooling. It meets the most stringent standards in terms of energy efficiency, reducing the energy consumption of a standard reference building by 50%.
