SNC-Lavalin lands deal for Montreal Symphony Orchestra concert hall
SNC-Lavalin has concluded a partnership agreement between the government of Quebec and Groupe immobilier Ovation, a limited partnership wholly owned by SNC-Lavalin, to design, build, finance, operate and maintain a new concert hall for the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.
The 2,100 seat concert hall will be located in downtown Montreal, next to the current Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier concert hall of Montreal’s Place des Arts.
Demolition work is underway and construction is set to begin in mid-August with completion scheduled for the summer of 2011.
SNC-Lavalin ProFac, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SNC-Lavalin, will then operate and maintain the concert hall until 2038.
