Located in the heart of the city of Laval, this new building is an integral part of Centropolis, a strategic location that provides a unique environment for business and leasure. The development of the 3055 Saint-Martin West has obtained a LEED® Gold certification.

Groupe Rousseau Lefebvre was in charge of designing this new office tower outdoors spaces. The roof and surrounding parking storm water was managed through a strategic design implementation and plantings. An allegorical design element, "the green corridor" was created and is the centerpiece of the outdoor spaces. Everything converges toward the “green corridor”, water and people alike. This impressive and architectural hollow is a place where the occupants lay back, relax and watch rain water flow, gather and percolate in an original setup.

This project demonstrates how stormwater can become an essential component of a business image.
