MONTREAL, Dec. 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - With the inauguration of its new space, the restaurant-bar Brasseur de Montréal becomes the Montreal showcase for a commercial application of the BONE Structure® light steel construction system.
Using BONE Structure technology, part of Brasseur de Montréal's outdoor terrace was closed in to expand the restaurant by 2,000 square feet, doubling its capacity with seating for 85 extra diners. "Our new space is superb," notes Marc-André Gauvreau, vice-president and founder of Brasseur de Montréal, "with lots of light and an industrial feel that fits with the restaurant's ambience. And it was all built in just two days, with no dust or waste!"
Making architecture creative
BONE Structure has developed and patented an international construction system that combines aesthetics, flexibility, efficiency, and respect for the environment. The light steel structure that forms the frame of Brasseur de Montréal's new addition made it possible to create an original volume for the space, with two ceiling heights and no interior bearing columns. "With this system, it's very easy to create the volumes you want and vary them as needed," explains Michelle Tremblay, vice-president and co-founder of BONE Structure. "BONE Structure allows for a 25-foot clear span and plentiful fenestration. We can therefore create open, light-filled spaces."
The façade of the restaurant's new dining room thus features very generous fenestration. The owners have left the galvanized steel beams showing to give the space an industrial style corresponding to the site's identity.
An efficient, environmentally friendly system
The BONE Structure elements are assembled simply. Unlike traditional construction methods, the process is extremely rapid and clean. Moreover, during the expansion of Brasseur de Montréal, accomplished in record time, the restaurant was able to stay open and serve customers without interruption, as the elimination of traditional construction inconveniences (noise, dust, waste) makes BONE Structure an environmentally friendly and respectful construction system. Even the pallets used to transport the construction materials were recycled to embellish the restaurant's interior décor. BONE Structure, which has specialized in home construction since its foundation, is now demonstrating its capacity to assemble commercial buildings, capitalizing on the numerous advantages that it offers (clean construction, volume and luminosity of spaces, rapidity of execution).
