Sustainability: it’s in the P&R DNA

We’ve always been environmentally conscious and committed to sustainability. In fact, P&R has been involved in the move towards sustainable buildings since the very early days.

This early involvement saw us identify, sort and trace recyclable materials as part of deconstruction programs. We also managed the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Commercial Interiors Platinum project in Quebec. Since then, we continue to share our expertise and field experience through our LEED projects.

We have had the privilege of working with P&R Desjardins on numerous important projects, including the development of our Teknion Montreal corporate showroom. One of our objectives aimed in the development of our space was to achieve LEED Platinum certification. The exceptional values and service of P&R Desjardins greatly contributed to the success of our project.
