It's quite a challenge to tell you a story of passion in just a few lines, to find the right words to paint a portrait of our firm, our tight-knit team and its founder.
It’s tricky and yet it’s quite simple, like us. Since day 1, Régis' story has been built on trust.
“The greatest joy I have today and have always had is the quality of people. The office would be nothing without each of them.” [Régis, founding architect]
Oh, our dear Régis, he doesn't look for words, he finds them. His narrative of the evolution of the firm is not marked out by dates, but rather by names. His to begin with, in 1976, with the opening of his first office. Then, of Jocelyn Boilard and Mario Leblanc in 1988. Hard workers, these two partners reinforced the values of ethics, honesty and respect that still guide our work. In 2016, the second generation, Jérôme, Stéphanie and Félix Côté joined the family business. Urban designer, administrator and construction engineer, they made the firm more accomplished each in their own way.
In 2019, Magalie Michel, Tinh Nguyen, Marie-Claude Fournier and Caroline Guérard joined forces. It is with a few tears of joy and a lot of pride that this important step came to support Régis' wish - a confident succession!
Yes, a succession, so that the firm continues to progress constantly, and so that each of us has the possibility to acheive greatness. It is this deep trust that carries our history and defines us. Client, contractor or future team member, our love of architecture and our competence are a fact, but by choosing us, you will get so much more. Looking forward to seeing you enter our story.
What's important to us
Placing people at the heart of our concerns gives us an essential perspective, both to bring our clients' vision to life and to make the talents of our teams shine. Building is only one step; for us, a project is only truly successful if it meets the expectations and needs of all the people it impacts.
We certainly have experience, but that doesn't prevent us from constantly striving to learn and share our technological advances. We have a drive to excel and this directly influences our services which, support the quality control of our work. We're definitely fans of technology!
Always looking to become the better version of ourselves
Yes, we love what we do. The advantages? We're motivated, curious, available and daring. We love architecture, design and the planning of spaces and buildings of all kinds. We're committed to our projects, committed to our customers, committed to seeing them through to the end, and very often invited to do it all over again ;-)
The art of being ourselves. It's that simple! You'll get an authentic relationship. We'll talk to each other like human beings, without pretension, and we'll be there for you. We're driven by our passion, and we rely on mutual trust to achieve the most successful projects.
You may only see names, but we see the strength of our company. Each and every one of them contributes in their own way to making us better, through their rigor, their creativity, their analysis, their attention to detail, their vision, and we're so proud of them. It's your turn to discover them!
Communicating the positives... and the negatives. We speak with honesty and don't bury reality or the truth. We believe we achieve better results when we share all the facts, so we have access to many more minds to form solutions.
