Project: La Tohu - Chapiteau des arts du cirque
Built over a rehabilitated municipal dump, the Chapiteau des Arts du Cirque is a project that brought fresh air to the Saint-Michel borough, in Montreal, because of its important community dimension. The project won a CISC Steel Construction Excellence Award in 2004 for its discerning choice of reused steel beams and its environmental synergy between scenic elements and steel structure.
The large steel structure that will soon take the characteristic cylindrical shape of the Tohu inspired by the traditional circus tent.
The building that hosts an exhibit hall and theatre – two large open spaces, called for lengthy steel beams.
This project was one of the first that Cadmax did entirely using Tekla Structure, for the 3D modeling as well as the steel detailing.
