Throughout his career, André has played a key role in a number of large-scale and award-winning projects, including Laval’s state-of-the-art Place Bell, Canadian Space Agency headquarters in Saint-Hubert, QC, and Édifice Jacques-Parizeau, a 700,000-sq-ft mixed-use complex at the heart of Montreal’s International Quarter. Practicing locally and internationally, André has always shown great skill as a communicator and leader, consistently inspiring his teams to outdo themselves. His expertise is informed by his training in project management, sustainable development and law, as well as a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Université Laval in Quebec City.
