The modern build of this signature building combines sustainable development (solar energy, geothermal and grey water recycling systems) and use of regional materials (aluminum and wood). Spanning over 2,700 m2 on three (3) levels, the Alouette university pavilion can welcome up to 400 students and is a major legacy for the community. The construction techniques, and ultimately the usage techniques, incorporate sustainable development elements compliant with the commitment of d’Aluminerie Alouette in the matter.
