Green architecture website launched by TC Media's Constructo Group

TC Media's Constructo Group, which publishes Journal Constructo and a number of special magazines and supplements serving the Quebec construction industry, is launching a marquee green architecture website,  Projets verts - La vitrine de l'architecture durable au Québec

The new site, developed in collaboration with the technical and sustainable building committee of the Quebec Association of Architects (OAQ),will allow architects to showcase sustainable project design for key players in the construction industry, including owners and real estate developers.

"Sharing knowledge is vital to the advancement of green architecture inQuebec. That way, the best practices and innovative solutions developed by some architects can be publicized and taken up and applied by others," said Anik Girard, general manager and publisher for Constructo Group.
"This site will be invaluable because sustainability in building design is an abstract concept," said André Bourassa, pesident of the OAQ. "This is particularly true in North America, where, too often, the quality and sustainability of the built environment are judged based on certifications. But we must remember that sustainable construction is much more than just a collection of techniques. The many projects identified by Projets verts demonstrate this by example."
 The new platform is a complement to the magazine Voir vert, published since 2008; the portal, online since 2010; and the annual issue on buildings, titled Bâtiment, published since 2001.

In addition to its publishing operations, in print and online, Constructo is involved in managing the Quebec government's official bid system, the Système électronique d'appel d'offres (SÉAO)
