Redevelopment of Sorel-Tracy and Saint-Ignace-de-Loyola ferry terminals

This large-scale project is still underway, but has already earned the sustainability award for the Sorel-Tracy marine terminal. “(…) In addition to the facility being requalified, a contaminated site was rehabilitated, and energy efficiency measures contributed to reducing energy consumption by half.” – Jury for the 13th edition of the Grands Prix du Design.

This multidisciplinary project consists of decontaminating and rehabilitating the site, as well as improving the fluidity of services to users through the redevelopment of both terminals’ infrastructure to accommodate new ferries with increased vehicle transport capacity. The project includes:

  • The reconstruction of both marine terminals
  • The construction of four new gatehouses
  • The redevelopment of the vehicle waiting area and land-based facilities
  • The construction of a warehouse and service buildings

The project also includes the improvement of users comfort through the reconstruction of the two marine terminals aiming for a LEED-NC Silver certification. The selected concepts for each project involved in the project maximize energy efficiency, sustainability and harmonization with the environment.

The first two phases represent total costs of $25M and include the redevelopment of land-based facilities at both sites, and the reconstruction of the Sorel-Tracy and Saint-Ignace-de-Loyola marine terminals. Phases 3 and 4 consist of the refurbishment of the landings on both sites.
