Claude Provencher Provencher_Roy

Provencher_Roy. Claude Provencher and Michel Roy founded Montreal-based firm Provencher_Roy, 1983. In the 90s, the pair brought two new partners into the fold, Line Belhumeur and Alain Compéra. It was the era of Pointe-à-Callière and World Trade Centre Montréal, two landmark projects that established the firm as a force in Canadian architecture.

At the turn of the millennium, the multidisciplinary group was established with the addition of an interior design leader, the firm Moureaux Hauspy + Associés, which became Provencher_Roy Interior Design. To deepen the firm's commitment to sustainable development, Claude Bourbeau, an expert architect in the field, joined Provencher_Roy in 2005 as a partner. Five years later, in a bid to give the group a boost of momentum, eight new partners were appointed.

In the ensuing years, Provencher_Roy's integrated offer has consisted of multidisciplinary and complementary services in architecture, urban planning, urban design and landscape architecture, interior design, sustainable development and graphic design.

In 2017, in step with the shift undertaken years earlier to ensure the group's growth well into the future by investing in a new generation of talented and dynamic individuals, Provencher_Roy announced the appointment of 14 new partners.

In April 2018, the firm welcomes a new partner, BBBL (Birtz Bastien Beaudoin Laforest architectes). This acquisition made it possible an exceptional pool of expertise in the health, research and primary, secondary and higher education sectors.

The firm brings together nearly 350 passionate professionals working in all areas of the environment built. Over the past years, the firm has had a tremendous impact on Canadian cities, particularly Montreal, through a mix of contemporary projects and the rehabilitation of iconic buildings, recent examples being the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

Operating in the institutional sector, but also in the fields of science, education and transportation, Provencher_Roy was a player in the construction of the new Champlain Bridge, the restoration of the Iberville International Maritime Terminal and the Alexandra Pier, and the construction of Îlot Balmoral, a signature building in Montreal’s Quartier des spectacles.

Named Architectural Firm of the Year in 2015 by the Royal Architecture Institute of Canada (RAIC), Provencher_Roy has garnered numerous awards for its achievements.
