The countdown is on: Strøm Mont Saint-Hilaire will reopen on July 14th

The energy is at an all-time high at Strøm Mont-Saint-Hilaire! Every day, more than 40 people work with great dedication on the site. The building is almost finished. All that remains is to install the drywall on the central area and build the stairs. The locker rooms are mostly completed and the ceramic tile installation is in progress. The paving blocks that make up the parking area are slowly put in place. The installation of the exterior siding has begun and this beautiful reconstruction project is becoming more and more real. The landscaping team is currently working on the new basins as well as on the entire site to add a touch of magic for the reopening that is scheduled for July 14th. We look forward to welcoming you on this long-awaited day!

There is so much excitement with the reopening of the Strøm spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire!

Spring is coming with its share of changes. At Strøm, a major change we are looking forward to is the reopening of the Strøm Nordic Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire that is planned for late spring. The excitement is at its height and we can’t wait to welcome back our valued customers.

In terms of the construction work, we are now able to see the divisions throughout the whole building. There are a lot of workers on the job site on a daily basis, the environment is changing rapidly and the building is taking shape. The foundations, structure, insulation, waterproofing the building and roofing are now complete. The exterior walls are completed and ready to accommodate the exterior siding. We are currently continuing the interior work: plumbing, ventilation and installation of electricity. The building of interior partitions, sealing of the joints and painting are also in progress. The thawing ground and spring weather allowed us to begin with the landscaping and siding a few days ago. Stay tuned for the next steps!

What’s new with the construction of the Strøm Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire?

With only a few months to go before the reopening, we are excited to share with you the latest news about the construction and the new experiences that you will be able to take advantage of at the long-awaited moment. To date, the steel and wood structure is completed. The exterior walls are up. The completion of the work is scheduled for the end of spring 2018.

 

 

We are happy to introduce you to the main building that will house the reception, the changing rooms, the sauna, the steam bath, the relaxation rooms as well as the treatment rooms.

We have preserved the shape of the original building while emphasizing a Scandinavian architectural style. The day we reopen, the main building will allow us to accommodate nearly twice as many customers.

Through the creative process, the entrepreneurial guideline was to transport the exterior to the interior by emphasizing natural light and the use of raw materials.

 

 

We look forward to showing you the new treatment rooms and the facilities that will be located in the main building.

We will have more than 30 treatment tables as well as a large room for manicure and pedicure.

 

 

The reception area will have a cathedral ceiling and large windows letting in an abundance of natural light. The boutique will feature a range of new products as well as a variety of local collections.

 

 

On your next visit, you will be able to discover our new menu inspired by Scandinavian gastronomy. And by doubling the seating capacity, the bistro experience will be so much more enjoyable than it was before.

 

 

Novelty: a new relaxation room with panoramic windows offering a magnificent view of Mont-Saint-Hilaire has been incorporated in the new building. We look forward to welcoming you there as soon as we reopen.

A renewed Scandinavian experience, in an environment as welcoming and warm as before.

A renewed Scandinavian experience, in an environment as welcoming and warm as before.

The reconstruction of the Strøm Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire is well underway. We are finishing the steel structure and we can finally see the shape of the building. The wood framing for the floors and the roof will begin in the next few days. The new hot pool, which will replace the old whirlpool, is in the progress of being built and we will soon begin the construction of the cold pool. The excitement surrounding the reopening is palpable as we can easily envision the rooms when we are standing in the middle of the foundation walls. The interior and exterior design has been carefully planned to enhance the experience while preserving the charm of the past. We look forward to giving you a renewed Scandinavian experience in an environment as welcoming and warm as before.

The team will begin the hiring period in January. To our delight, many employees have shown an interest in being part of the team again as soon as the spa reopens. Some department managers have already resumed their functions.

Day after day, we are conscious of the progress made, which is extremely motivating. We are getting closer and closer to our goal; reopening our doors to welcome our valued customers again.

A brand new experience at Strøm Mont-Saint-Hilaire

With construction well on its way, we are happy to share with you the novelties and future plans for the new Strøm Mont-Saint-Hilaire. 
The new building at the spa in Mont-Saint-Hilaire will feature a refreshed architecture in the image of the Strøm and of the surroundings as well as a refined environment for an optimized comfort. Also, the warm atmosphere our clientele enjoys so much will, of course, be present. Significant improvement is also anticipated in managing high traffic hours. The expansion and reconfiguration of the reception area will help to avoid waiting times at the entrance during the busy periods. The bistro will also offer a bigger accommodation capacity. A relaxation room “in the dark”, as well as a new room with panoramic windows and a view of the mountain will be part of the additions to the experience. Furthermore, in addition to the improvements already made during the expansion period of 2016, the planned reconstruction of the old part of the building will improve the customer experience even more.
The opening is scheduled for winter 2018. We will make sure to keep you posted with more details concerning the exact time of the reopening. Stay tuned!

Once upon a time… the story of the rooster emblem

Once upon a time… the story of the rooster emblem

The fire at the Strøm Mont-Saint-Hilaire created a great deal of turmoil amongst the Strøm team, our loyal customers, but also in the Smits family, who built the building, that was once their family home, with their own hands. After the fire, against all expectations, the rooster adorning the roof of the Strøm Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire, was found undamaged.

 

Looking back at the symbolic of this cult object.

“The house next to the Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire is the house of my grandparents. When my father was young, he was often playing on the neighboring land, which is now the Strøm Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire. As an adult, my father bought the land. At that time, it was completely undeveloped. My parents designed the plans for our family home. My father, with the help of some of his friends, built the entire building, which some years later was converted to a spa by the Dulude family. When the construction was completed, the rooster was installed at the top of the house. Over the years, we have developed a special bond with this symbol for several reasons! First of all, it was my father or my grandfather who had it custom built by a craftsman. Furthermore, our roots are European and the rooster is the emblem of France, it represents our roots and reminds us of where we come from. After the fire last December, we were curious to find out the fate of the famous rooster. And finally we were very happy to learn that it was not destroyed by the fire!” – Frédéricke Smits, daughter of papa Smits and receptionist at the Strøm Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire.

 

After the fire, on May 11, 2017, Julie Morin, the general manager of Strøm Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire, was filled with emotion when she was finally able to give this object of great sentimental value back to the Smits family.

 

The attachment to history and symbolism can be passed on through family, but also through closely knit teams. And the bond that Julie Morin has formed with this figurine is the perfect proof!
