This project addresses the design and development of a new ''Centre Local de Services Communautaires'' within ont of the most animated entertainment sectors of downtown Montreal. It is located as the eastern limits of the ''Quartier des spectacles'', adjacent to the campus of the ''Université du Québec''. This modern six-storey building houses the new "CLSC des Faubourgs'', which provides a vast variety of services. These services extend from care of the ever-present number of vagrants and street youth in this area of town, and the home care of individuals with reduced autonomy, to a clinic offering women's health care services, one specializing in the care of mental health issues and one four routine care of the population.
The programme is completed by the incorporation of a research department for this "CLSC'', which is designated as a university affiliated centre. A significant design feature is the visual designation of each department through the use of a specific color coding for each one in order to facilitate way finding for the Centre's end-users. The project was carried out using a fast track, design-build method, based on an accelerated schedule of 18 months.
