Le développement de nouvelles techniques de construction ou d’outils technologiques qui permettent d’accélérer la mise en œuvre de bâtiments est en forte croissance ces dernières années. Qu’il s’agisse d’utilisation à une plus grande échelle de l’outil de modélisation des données d’un bâtiment (BIM ou Building Information Modeling) ou encore d’intégration de systèmes de construction innovants qui permettent une mise en place rapide des éléments de structure, ces nouvelles techniques et technologies de construction sont souvent citées en exemple lors de la construction d’édifices se en milieu urbain hautement densifié.

Une meilleure planification jumelée à une construction rapide des bâtiments permettent de minimiser les impacts sur les citoyens. Dans cette plénière, des exemples de nouvelles technologies et techniques de construction actuellement déployées à travers le monde seront présentés.

  • Nicolas Demers-Stoddart

    Provencher-Roy Architects, Canada

    Nicolas Demers-Stoddart joined the Provencher_Roy team in 2011 and since then has played a top-tier design role. He has worked as design manager on numerous projects, including Gare Viger and the reception pavilion of the Québec National Assembly; the latter won an Award of Merit at the 2016 Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence. He was also involved in the design of the Alexandra Pier Maritime Terminal; The Arbour international competition entry focusing on mass timber. Before joining Provencher_Roy, Nicolas worked at OMA New York, most notably on the design of the Marina Abramovic Institute for the Preservation of Performance Art (MAI). He initiated and led the ContemPLAY Pavilion project at McGill University, in collaboration with FARMM (Facility for Architecture Research and Media Mediation), where the use of parametrically designed hybrid timber-steel prefabricated structure constituted a first for a Canadian university.  Nicolas also teaches, is a visiting critic at McGill University, and has led a workshop on architecture and industrial design at the Université de Montréal, in addition to teaching emergency engineering at Polytechnique Montréal. He holds a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Concordia University), a Bachelor of Architecture (Université de Montréal), and a Master of Architecture (McGill University).

  • Toni Kekki

    Rahennuskonsultointi T Tekki, Finland

    Toni Kekki is a 43-year-old master of engineering, father of two and grandfather of two who has worked in the field of structural engineering for the past 20 years. His career has included the design of concrete and steel structures, product development, development of prefabrication methods and project management. Since 2010 he has been working with massive timber almost full-time. The projects have been mostly multi-storey (>4 storey) residental housing projects, primarily in Finland, with some export projects. His largest projects have been Puukuokka in Jyväskylä and DAS Kelo in Rovaniemi, while the tallest projects were Tuuliniitty in Espoo (13-storey, responsible designer) and the Joensuu Lighthouse (14-storey, structural analysis consultant). Mr. Kekki stongly believes that timber is a useful and traditional material, and we haven’t seen its full potential yet. His mission is to create sustainable solutions for the reasonable use of natural resources and he is working for a better future for generations to come.
