Marché Public de Lévis

This new public space, an extension of the ground floor of the Miscéo building, blends harmoniously with the existing architecture. Thanks to a roof system comprised of a translucent canvas covering and five retractable awnings, this new semi-exterior space creates an opening upward into the sky. The Marché Public de Lévis (Lévis farmers’ market) also opens onto the surrounding public thoroughfares on account of its three voluminous garage doors and its numerous windows. The glulam structure is an appropriate choice not only for its aesthetic qualities but also for its robustness. The all-wood assemblies contributed strongly to creating a warm, streamlined setting not to mention a signature for this new space.
The structure consists of prefabricated glulam beams, columns and trusses. Thanks to the preassembly of trusses, the main structural framework could be erected in less than two days. Glulam structures offer a valuable substitute for the light metal structures often used to create this type of space.
The cost of the glulam structure is $42,000.
