HEC Montréal is planning a new building in the Ville-Marie borough, in the heart of the city’s business district.
New building in the downtown business district
The new building is to be erected on part of a property next to St. Patrick’s Basilica, between Côte du Beaver Hall and rue Saint-Alexandre.
This will enable HEC Montréal to:
expand its range of distinctive specialized management programs, in French;
get closer to the business community;
simplify access for downtown workers to HEC Montréal classes; and
foster exchanges with institutional partners and create a forum for knowledge transfer and co-innovation to help companies thrive (bringing together activities devoted to entrepreneurship and innovation, along with research centres).
To better serve the large number of its students who work in downtown Montréal, HEC Montréal plans to offer a number of distinctive specialized programs in the new building:
portfolio of MBA programs
certain certificates, specialized graduate diplomas and short graduate programs
training for professionals, executives and managers
research and knowledge transfer activities
community services (e.g., access to meeting rooms)
HEC Montréal Foundation
Alumni HEC Montréal (alumni network)
HEC Montréal – Business Alliances
All activities relating to the bachelor’s, Master of Science in Administration and doctoral programs will remain at the School’s Côte-Ste-Catherine and Decelles buildings, in the Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough.
A geotechnical study to gather more data on the site
In order to characterize the soil, determine the bearing capacity and gather some data essential for designing its new building, HEC Montréal plans to conduct a geotechnical study on the site of the future building.
The study will include probes in certain locations on the site, along with temporary test pits. The work will be done during normal working hours (7 a.m. to 5 p.m.) starting September 21 and will last about eight days. Once the study has been completed, the work crew will return the grounds to their original condition.
