Vidéotron Centre

Québec, Québec

The Videotron Centre includes 92 needles made of Nordic Lam glued-laminated timber. These columns are designed to support the weight of the curtain walls while transferring lateral loads to the main structure. These elements are open to spectators in the peripheral corridors of the amphitheatre. Each column is composed of 2 members, for a total of 184 elements and 473 cubic meters of wood, resulting in the sequestration of 362 tons of CO2.
