Avison Young continues expansion with Montreal-based acquisition
Avison Young announced that it has acquired Montreal-based project management firm Roy et Tremblay Inc. The purchase further expands Avison Young’s business-line coverage in Montreal and the province of Quebec. The change in ownership adds nine employees to Avison Young’s Montreal operations.
Effective immediately, Roy et Tremblay co-founder Claude Roy becomes a Principal and Director of Project Management for Quebec. In this role, he will be responsible for project management business development in Montreal and the rest of Quebec, participate in the presentation of services to potential clients, and prepare offers for project management services.
“While Avison Young has expanded extensively in the U.S. in the past few years, this acquisition also demonstrates that we will not hesitate to expand in our well-established Canadian market when an outstanding opportunity like this one presents itself,” said Mark E. Rose, Chair and CEO.
Established in 1995, Roy et Tremblay specializes in major project management assignments. The firm has also developed a particular expertise in the implementation of projects in the cultural domain, such as theatres, art schools, circus schools and museums. Currently, projects under construction are valued at $130 million. The company’s current and past clients include Diffusion en Scène, the Caisses Desjardins, Business Development Bank of Canada, Musée de Joliette, Théâtre du Rideau Vert, Cirque Éloize, Ville de Delson, Ville de Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Le Cube, McGill University, the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec, L’Oréal Canada, and the Chambre des notaires du Québec.
