His portfolio covers a wide variety of projects, such as the rehabilitation of a portion of the former Royal Victoria Hospital site for the McGill New Vic Project, the Senate of Canada rehabilitation project (formerly Ottawa’s Union Station), a heritage study and conservation guidelines for the Ilot Bonsecours in Old Montréal, the rehabilitation of the Toronto Union Station Train Shed, and heritage studies for the Société québécoise des infrastructures such as for the Maison Tanguay.
