SPECIAL FEATURES

 

ARCHITECTURAL:

The building was constructed in a very mountainous and forested  region thus necessitating critical layout of base building and infrastructures.  Careful planning of floor elevations and parking areas produced a magnificent holiday resort.  The building is built completely of pre-fabricated wood structural modules, and load bearing walls sitting on conventional concrete foundations.  The property also benefits from an indoor pool c/w water slides and water games.  The facades are composed of real cut stone and “hardy planking”

Central air conditioning for common areas, corridors etc. Individual air conditioning wall units for rooms and conference room.  Specialized “Dryotron dehumidifying system” in pool area.  Sprinkler fire protection throughout.  Garbage chute on all floors.

STRUCTURAL:

Wood frame structural modules, sloped wood truss roof, conventional concrete foundations.  Ground floor is “split-level”, all pre-fabricated wood floors have 2” thick concrete slabs poured over the plywood

ELECTRICAL:

1000 amps main c/w distribution on 3 ½ floors with sub-stations on each floor

CONSTRUCTION TIME:

Seven and a half (7 ½)  months

 

PARTICULARITIES

All architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical design coordination and permit approvals were the responsibility of TRIDOME, on a “Design build” basis.

 

The building being set on an undeveloped mountainside, it was necessary to build a new City road with all its infrastructure such as, water, sewer, gaz, fire protection, electricity etc. to service the new property.   This road was built by TRIDOME and then given back to the City of Ste-Agathe-des-Monts.

 

All floors are sound insulated with 2” of concrete over the plywood, and the Plenum space in the floor with sprayed insulation.  All walls between rooms are sound insulated with 2”x6” wood studs, and the space filled with batt insulation and 2 layers of 5/8” gyproc on both sides, screwed to resilient bars
