La Facture: Condos without structure plans

La Facture: Condos without structure plans (2013)

7155 ave. M.B. Jodoin Anjou (Qc).

Mᵉ Papineau is participating as an expert. (± 17 min)




A building that houses 40 condo units suffered from structural problems. So much so that, last winter, it had to be reinforced. Workers have added no less than 112 columns of wood and steel.

La Facture wanted to understand how an only ten year old building could require such compensation.

Our research for missing structure plans resulted in uncovering significant deficiencies in the supervision of construction sites in the province of Quebec.



On the same subject, you may also listen to this short radio interview with Mr. Papineau, performed the next morning by Marie-France Bazzo on her show "C'est pas trop tôt". (± 5 min)
