Message From The Editor

Managing Editor, Line Goyette Planning seems to have much better taste

New technologies are hard to resist, especially in an industry that constantly talks about energy efficiency, design, innovation, and sustainable development. But sometimes circumstances dictate the delay of a project and you wonder if it is better to retrofit or relight. We talk about that in this issue and also about a project that was delayed — to the customer’s advantage. Here again, we see creativity not only in design, but also in the solutions proposed. Good reading!
