Bell Sports Complex

Located at the western end of Brossard’s Quartier Dix30, this sports complex is the result of a partnership between the Canadiens Hockey Club, Axor Group and the City of Brossard. The project juxtaposes two monolithic blocks, the larger of which, housing a soccer field, is treated in a very simple, uniform style with smooth white metal cladding that accentuates its lightness and helps it blend into the environment.

The second block, comprising arenas, commercial and public areas and private Canadiens’ spaces, has a more massive, imposing appearance. Its storefronts, with their ample windows, are made of brick and phenolic resin cladding, with curtain walls, to present a solid façade.

The building, designed primarily to hold Canadiens’ training sessions, houses a variety of facilities:

  • 2 arenas built to NHL standards that are virtually identical to the Bell Centre in Montreal,
  • An indoor soccer field built to FIFA standards,
  • Adjoining changing rooms and facilities for the different teams,
  • Bleachers that seat up to 400 spectators,
  • Food courts with an unobstructed view of the sports facilities,
  • The Canadiens’ facility, including a fitness centre and an ultra modern clinical treatment room, change rooms, media room, room for press conferences, administrative offices, locker rooms, equipment rooms and, lastly, indoor parking for 50 cars,
  • A fitness centre and physiotherapy rooms,
  • The Habs Zone store
  • Outdoor parking for the building.

The Training Centre, is easily visible from Autoroute 10, has good road signage, and the Montreal Canadiens logo is displayed on the building façade.
