Hydro-Québec Data Center - Drummondville
Hydro-Québec has invested $100-million into the construction of a data center in Drummondville. The one-story, 10 114 square meters is expected to open fall 2016. This data center will be important to collect data across Montréal in particular. It will also hold critical equipment to sustain systems for electricity transfer in Québec. Stanex will be providing and servicing all the backup-power necessary to keep the systems up and running.
Tour des Canadiens - Phase 1
The Montreal Canadiens are one of this city’s greatest treasures. A new $2-billion construction project by Cadillac Fairview, Quad Windsor covers 5 million square feet around the Bell Centre home of the beloved Habs. Stanex hard work and expertise in the business has landed them a deal to design and service the fire alarm system for Phase 1 of the Tour des Canadiens. The Tour des Canadiens is the city’s first-ever sports and entertainment condominium complex.
When the Bell Centre was first constructed in 1996 (then Molson Centre), the surrounding area was bleak. In an effort to bring more people to the area, Geoff Molson, owner, president and CEO of Club de hockey Canadien has invested in the first tower that is projected to open towards the end of 2016. The 50-storey tower will feature 555 condos, thirteen floors of parking and a large sports bar on the ground floor.
Private Seniors' Residence Project
Following the tragedy in Isle-Verte on January 23, 2014, the Service de sécurité incendie de Montréal (SIM) put in place a subsidy program of up to 2 million dollars per year for five years, to help with the installation of fire sprinkler systems.
In order to obtain this subsidy there are several steps that need to be completed. Stanex is working in conjunction with the city of Montréal to provide this service to the owners of these residence homes. Stanex will obtain all the documents necessary in order to obtain the subsidy.
Running Man Emergency Lighting Migration
Canada is slowly but surely making changes to comply with the International Fire Code (IFC). With the influx of immigrants and visitors to our country, having a common language for emergency signage is imperative. The new Running Green Man signage eliminates any lingual limitations by opting for a simple pictogram leading people to safety. The shift from red to green is due to the accepted notion that red is usually associated with “stop” and green is associated with “go”. The signs can also be photo luminescent; they give off light without electricity. As a distributor of Stanpro Emergency Lighting products, Stanex is committed to helping new and already built buildings and enterprises in the migration to a safer method of signaling emergency exits. The National Research Council updated its model building code in2010 and gradually each province is adopting the new regulations.
