We suggest more durable than basic conception solutions by sometimes exceeding the minimum requirements and only after careful verifications and analysis. All this, to create a superior-quality finished product.

We assist you who aim to build, remodel, or improve the performance and quality of your assets by: creating healthier interiors, selecting specifications to improve building overall energy consumption performance (to reduce monthly expenses for the owner) and to increase comfort through application of high performance and durability standards.

Improve

We are constantly improving our knowledge to better ourselves and to offer the best services to our clients. For example, in 2020 we trained on the Montréal rules and regulations with renowned local legal experts and we started our training to become PASSIVE HOUSE™ certified consultants.

All this knowledge, plus our professional network of partners, allow us to offer the appropriate support and assistance to our clients through the process of planning and executing various types of projects.

The founding member and president of 𝝣xARCITÉ has been an active contributor to the realization of private and public award winning projects in the Montréal area.

Our Story

Eric Massé gratuated from Montreal University in 1996 and he has been an active contributor, through collaboration with renowned architectural and engineering firms, to the realization of private and public award winning projects in the Montréal area. He had over two decades to practice a reflective conceptual approach to is conception work. His basic tools being light, natural materials and textures to create emotionally meaningful spaces anchored in space through new constructions and remodelling, public and private parks and in urban areas and private mountain retreats.

Over the years, Eric also acquired extensive technical skills in projects such as the development of Montmorency and De La Concorde Metro Stations, Aéroports de Montréal and Jewish General Hospital. Meanwhile he was coordinating teams of professionals, specialists, and field experts, from preliminary studies to site quality control and construction administration.

After 20 years in such intense projects, exhausted, Eric had to retire for about a year and meditate on all that he had accomplished and not been at the same time. What had happened to him can happen to the best of us. He had to break the habit of being his old self and find back the spark – his zest for life. And find, he did. He knew now that he deeply needed to have a durable and positive impact on the environment and the people around him. He had realised that his path would be to lead an innovative integrated solution oriented company that would become a provider of creative and durable answers to architectural and real-estate needs. His boutique sized firm would be especially suited to upscale residential, commercial, and sometimes more complex specialized projects of the institutional and transport sectors.

In unparalleled times, spring 2020, he mindfully creates the company that adapt to his vision. This company respond to a need to offer more thoughtful living and working spaces, better performing buildings that are more suited and more durable for those who seek them by exceeding the minimum requirements and having a commitment to excellence. 𝝣xARCITÉ then quickly identify partners, collaborators and potential employees who share common beliefs not only about integrity, excellence, rigorous work but also about the importance of having positive approach, believing in innovation and boldness with a dose of appropriate caution and being a good team player.
