Lemay is proud to introduce sustainable development specialist, Hugo Lafrance, LEED AP BD+C and O+M, as a new member of its team. Mr. Lafrance joins Lemay’s sustainable development team, which has the mission to support all project teams in their efforts to design sustainable living environments.
Over the last 10 years, Mr. Lafrance has been fine tuning his expertise in sustainable solutions for built environment.
