ECO FRIENDLY STORES
In order to provide more comfort to our customers, while respecting the environment, GAGNON has built two stores with special consideration given towards the environment.
The first Store opened on April 7, 2012 in Saint-André-Avellin and the second was inaugurated on August 30th of the same year in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. These buildings have been designed according to European practices which promotes energy efficiency and ecology.
- Structure made of Nordic glued laminated wood made in Quebec
- Geothermal energy to heat and cool the store
- Natural lighting through skylights which greatly reduces the need for artificial light
- Radiant floors with a heat recovery system
- Green plant walls that help purify the air
- Electronic labels as a means of displaying prices. This alternative eliminates over 100,000 paper label impressions annually.
