Annual Report 2017 – an exceptional year at the Technoparc
The 2017 annual report of Technoparc Montréal is now available. It shows an exceptional year, matching a record level in terms of the number of jobs on the site as well as the number of companies present. As of December 31st, 2017, the Technoparc de Montréal was the address of 115 companies, employing 7,200 people, 96% of which were in four technology-intensive sectors. In addition, 2 new head offices were inaugurated during the year: ABB’s Canadian headquarters and GC Biotherapeutics’ North American headquarters. Note that GC Biotherapeutics’ investment represents the largest investment in life sciences in Canada in the last ten years.
As well, there were more than nine real estate transactions during the year, for a total of $ 62.7 million and the sale of land for $ 3.22 million to FPInnovations. The latter will establish its head office at the Technoparc, in the Éco-campus Hubert Reeves section, which has seen major investments in its infrastructure during the year.

Monthly Sustainability Tips & Insights from ERA: beat the heat with a cool roof
ERA Environmental recently underwent construction of their new “Cool Roof”, right in time for the summer heat. This project is helping them to reduce their carbon footprint whilst maintaining the integrity of their new building. If considering roof repairs, please consider this project. When assessing your building maintenance, try to see the opportunities to reduce your carbon footprint and energy consumption for the long term. While typical roofs are black, the cool roof is a white concrete coating that reflects all wavelengths, keeping the material (and building underneath it) cooler. Many benefits can result, the most important ones follow. First, it won’t overheat, thus preventing premature deterioration of the structure of the building. Also, it reduces heat islands in urban areas, for your building and your neighbors’. Plus, every 1000 square foot of cool roof results in a CO2 offset of 10 metric tons each year, curbing climate change. Questions on this tip? Please send an email to ERA at firstname.lastname@example.org
