Having completed a degree in pure science ending with an experience in biotechnology, Samuel did an about-turn and completely changed his field. Eager to be creative, he chose architecture, which allowed him to combine two of his passions: science and design. In 2021, he completed his studies at Cégep du Vieux Montréal in Architectural Technology and joined the team of Blouin Tardif Architects. Since then, he has worked mainly in building renovation and refurbishment, aspects of architecture that stimulate him by the technical challenges they present.
“I particularly enjoyed working on the envelope repair project for the Sandoz office building in Boucherville. This project related to a building housing a pharmaceutical company represented a great technical challenge: water infiltration was detected both on the roof and in the vertical envelope of the building. Bringing a solution that combines a sustainable proposal with a sequence of works that will maximize the efficiency of the interventions is the kind of complex challenge that stimulates me. From the survey of existing conditions to the development of plans and details, this project, which also represented one of my first projects at Blouin Tardif Architects, allowed me to work in several areas of a rehabilitation project.’’
