With its innovative design, its exhibition centre, and the storage facility for the Musée des maîtres et artisans du Québec, the Bibliotheque du Boisé represents a model of human, pluralistic, and green development with a resolute focus on the future. In addition to its leading-edge services and the size of its collection, it offers truly universal access to culture and information. Located in the heart of the recreational-educational centre of the borough, the library is part of the civic artery created along Boulevard Thimens and seeks to obtain LEED Gold certification

Application of PMI processes

Not only were PMI processes incorporated at every stage, but the management of the project was innovative and original. The methods used contributed to advancing technical standards and enhanced the image of project management as a profession. Within all of the methods used, proactivity, planning, multidisciplinarity, and a participative management approach stand out as major strengths of the Project Team.
