Not for the Faint of Heart!


Designed by architect Roland Dumais and inaugurated in 1970, this brutalist-style building is requiring major renovation of its concrete facades. BARIN is overseeing the judicious repair and restoration of this heritage building, the second campus for the École des Hautes études de Montréal. This world-renowned French-language university offers management education and research and has been training future managers who contribute to our society’s growth and prosperity, since 1907.

The STM is on the Move!


BARIN is involved in the relocation of certain parts painting equipment for the STM workshops. This relocation will support the construction of the new STM complex. The services thus relocated will free the old buildings destined to be demolished in order to make room for the new complex. The relocation of these services also makes it possible to modernize and consolidate existing facilities.
