The redevelopment of the domestic and international departures sector of the Montreal Airport was spread over several years. From 1993 to 2010, ADM entrusted NCK with more than fifty mandates of various sizes, including the redevelopment of the registration halls, the installation of a monumental staircase, the installation of skylights, the redevelopment of the dining areas, and the creation of new spaces in a new interior courtyard.

Complex technical challenges were met in the structure. The terminal is a building that has undergone many changes since its opening, thus requiring rigorous surveys of the existing building in order to carry out the various reorganisations requested by the client. In most cases, this involved delicate work on steel and concrete structures. In addition, the completion of certain projects was sometimes complex, given the major constraint of not hindering airport operations.

For these interventions on one of the main gateways to Québec, NCK provided complete structural engineering consulting services. Some of the mandates were carried out as part of joint ventures.
