Maison Manuvie reaches major milestone

A noteworthy milestone was reached on November 24, when the final beam was raised in the construction of Maison Manuvie – known as the steel-topping event.

A group led by Bernard Poliquin, Senior Vice President, Office, Quebec, proudly attended the steel topping ceremony alongside 150 members from the construction team. Mr. Poliquin shared a few words with Ted Willcocks, Global Head of Asset Management, Manulife Real Estate and Martin Jacques, Vice President, Construction, Pomerleau. The beam was signed by those who have contributed to the project and a fir tree was placed on the beam, a tradition dating back to the 8th century, as a good luck charm for the duration of construction.

When completed, 1,100 workers will have worked on the 27-storey, Class AAA building, which aims to achieve LEED® CS Gold certification. The project is on schedule to be completed next summer, with the first tenants expected to move in September 2017. They will benefit from working in an ideal Location in the core of Montreal’s business district.

Maison Manuvie is a shining example of our Company’s global expertise in developing next-generation buildings that will shape the future of vibrant cities.
