Selective Demolition of Buildings at a Pulp Mill in Shawinigan, QC

An important paper-making complex located in Grand-Mère, Shawinigan, built between 1887 and 1889, it closed its doors in October 2014., Démex was assigned the deconstruction mandate with immediate mobilization with very little time to complete the project and delay penalties. Despite having to manage hazardous materials and other waste, Démex kept its promise and met the deadline.


  • Total deconstruction of parts of the buildings
  • Asbestos abatement
  • Stripping
  • Metal Reclamation/Recycling
  • Waste management
  • Consulting services


  • Adhering to a tight schedule with immediate mobilization
  • Environmental protection
  • Debris segregation
  • Management of hazardous materials (asbestos, lead and PCBs)
  • Adjoining buildings
