Le bois remplace doucement l'acier

...Ten years ago in May, the Quebec government launched its strategy to use wood in construction to try to revive the forest industry in crisis. This project, led by the former Minister of Natural Resources, Claude Béchard, planned to triple the consumption of wood in construction, where concrete and steel dominate. Ten years later, wood market shares are increasing, but some industry players believe that Quebec can do better ( In French only )

From design to delivery, Sotramont has acquired unique expertise in residential property, whether town homes, multi-residential buildings, or urban planning and development. The company has built up its know-how over more than 50 years, always pursuing the same exacting standards.

PIONEER OF GREEN Building with CLT

You're in Good Hands with Sotramont

The strategic priority for Sotramont is the promotion of sustainable construction for the benefit of our customers, which translates into concrete actions. Throughout the planning of a project we involve all our partners on this topic and offer support from the beginning on these issues. We also set up exchanges and reflections with all stakeholders to ensure that the resulting dialogue allows us to anticipate market changes and to find new sustainable construction solutions that truly meet the needs of users. By multiplying the opportunities to share our visions and know-how, we build relationships of trust based on transparency. And in an ongoing effort to improve the quality of this dialogue, we have chosen since 2016, the Integrated Concept Process, this approach has allowed the company to make homes more efficient and cheaper.

Nearly 50 years of residential construction across the country.

...Founded by Robert Roy, Sotramont is now headed by his son Marc-André Roy and is well known as one of the main promoters of the Bois-Franc district (Borough of St-Laurent). For 49 years, Sotramont has built more than 5,000 housing units, the vast majority in wood, but Arbora is the consecration of his efforts. (Translated excerpt from French article, see below:
