HEC Montréal wants this new building in the downtown business district to reflect the principles that have allowed it to earn a place as one of the world’s leading business schools.
This commitment will be visible in three key regards: modernity, functionality and sustainability:
A model of financial management
The School also hopes that the project will serve as a model of rigorous, intelligent and innovative financial management, consistent with the practices it espouses in its teaching and its own governance.
A model of integrated design
HEC Montréal wants to adopt an integrated design process (IDP), allowing it to:
Multidisciplinary workshops will be held, as a way of drawing on the creativity of all the professionals at HEC Montréal, so as to solve problems and quickly reach a consensus regarding project issues.

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.
