    Perron, an interior design studio specializing in the creation of overall experiences, proudly presents its design of Garoy Construction’s new office space on Saint-Anne Boulevard in Quebec City. With the aim of highlighting the construction firm’s expertise, the new environment stands out for its colorful, friendly aesthetic, offering an equally refreshing experience for the general contractor’s employees and customers alike.

    The new three-storey building was designed to accommodate Garoy Construction’s approximately 100 employees. The proposition had to comprise a variety of spaces to accommodate the administrative, estimation, and on-site teams. Depending on the nature of the tasks, workspaces are occupied either by dedicated closed offices, open-plan workrooms, meeting rooms, or conference rooms.

    Upon entering the building, the double height ceilings create a welcoming, majestic opening. The cantilevered volume above the reception desk creates a floating, light sensation. The emphasis on the building’s mechanics, the custom concrete formwork design, its imposing exposed wood structure, and its coloured steel beams pays tribute to Garoy Construction’s extensive expertise.

    The project incorporates the desire to create spaces that are more attractive than remote work options in the post-pandemic era. Perron relied on light, glazed surfaces to bring natural light into the heart of the offices, on soft, rounded shapes designed to break up the orthogonal nature of the plan, and on colour to energize the various spaces.

    The new offices offer breathtaking views of the St. Lawrence River. The common spaces and open-plan divisions were designed around the views, allowing maximum light penetration in the heart of the project. The kitchen and outdoor terrace face the river, providing a breathtaking panorama. The Perron team took care to fine-tune the details during the design process, which lasted over two years.

    From triangular ceramics in the kitchen, and a play of square grids in the café area, to the emerald green of the glass cube windows, every detail enriches the experience. Perron judiciously integrated elements referring to the general contractor’s daily life, creating a mural of construction helmets and custom wallpaper displaying Garoy’s world through illustrated icons.

    The colourful, technological, and adjustable furniture, chosen with care, dresses the offices with elegance and conviviality. Perron chose Quebec companies such as Rouillard for the office furniture, and Lambert et Fils for the lighting, but also added an international touch with MUUTO, Scandinavian furniture.

    Perron designed a warm, dynamic living environment that encourages interaction. With a golf simulator, a training room, a kitchen island that brings people together, and a multi-purpose room that opens onto the kitchen to accommodate 5 à 7s and events, the plan makes generous use of the recreational spaces on the 3rd floor.

    By combining their shared values of passion, rigor, and proximity, Garoy and Perron, collaborating for the second time, have designed bright, welcoming, and vibrant offices.
