Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal

Transformation of the Musée d'art contemporain (museum) in Montréal

  • Quantity Surveying

  • Cost Control

The Musée d’art contemporain (contemporary art museum) in Montréal is within the largest Canadian artistic and cultural street pattern since 1960. Having integrated its actual building in 1992, the MACM is located downtown Montréal, at the corner of Jeanne-Mance, Sainte-Catherine, de Maisonneuve and Saint-Urbain streets. Yet, today’s museums are confronted to new realities, technological changes and cultural practices, and public’s expectations, needs with regard to professional relief employees, and challenges to heritage management, and financial consolidation of museums. To meet all those challenges, the MACM had to be transformed. This project is under the supervision of the Société québécoise des infrastructures (Québec Infrastructure Corporation), and aims to:

  • Enlarge the main entrance to increase visibility and presence of the museum;
  • Increase available spaces to host more art exhibitions;
  • Increase tourism in the MACM and develop its clientele by enlarging spaces;
  • Reinforce the educational aspect of the MACM by building new spaces;
  • Generate revenues.
