On June 10th, Grandchamp was once again given the opportunity to shine, this time at the Gilles-Villeneuve circuit for the Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada. This 49th edition of the Grand Prix, which took place as part of the Formula One World Championship. This event is the seventh of twenty-one events. This year marked  the 39th Grand Prix held in Montreal on this particular circuit.


Grandchamp was awarded the Grand Prix construction contract to complete infrastructure repairs. We are a recognized tent manufacturer who holds a specific goal; upgrading the paddocks and the assets surrounding the project. To do so, we developed tailor-made structures using both  and rigid wall panels.


The current paddocks in place dated back to 1988. As part of the renovation project, they will be demolished so the new Grandchamp tent structures can be installed.


The Grand Prix also purchased spaces above the garages to be converted into VIP loges. Once the work is complete, it will increase the capacity of the loges to 5,000 people compared to 1,800. These loges will be on the third floor of the circuit’s new paddocks.


For the City of Montréal, the investment was a logical choice. In fact, Mayor Valérie Plante is hoping for a long-term agreement to keep the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Montréal. She has also stated that the new infrastructures could be used for other events, which will generate additional revenue.


The organizers of this major project recognized the quality of Grandchamp products. They also appreciated our tents’ original design, which contributes to their high-end aesthetics. In conclusion, our staff’s unparalleled service once again demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism.


Congratulations to our entire team for your skillful contributions, which allowed us to meet the specific needs of our client. Special thanks to our designers for their exceptional work.
