Menard Canada was founded in 1971 and it is dedicated to ground improvement and reinforcement technologies. These technologies are used to support surface structures (residential buildings, warehouses, airports, roads…) in a more cost-effective way than traditional techniques with a lower carbon footprint. Menard Group is part of the VINCI Group which also provides a network of talents in the construction industry and beyond.

Menard Canada has recently been migrating most of its core operational and design-related processes to online interconnected platforms. This shift helped optimize processes and gain internal efficiency. Some AI proofs of concept have also been developed from this new data infrastructure. One of these proofs of concept consists of processing and extracting key information from open-source datasets to help local business development teams.
