Exemplifying excellence in the industry, Alumicor’s architectural representative, Jennie Lamoureux, was elected to serve as director of Devis de construction Canada-Construction Specifications Canada (DCC-CSC) Section de Montréal. She is the first woman to hold this chapter’s highest office. She most recently served as chair of CSC-DCC Montréal. In 2020, her dedication and contributions to DCC-CSC were recognized with a 2020 Chapter Award of Merit.

At the 2023 CSC Awards Luncheon, held May 28 in Calgary, Alta., Lamoureux also was honoured with a Programme Director’s Award for Communications. The award recognized her exceptional work in creating the Chairs Committee and communications tool to connect CSC leaders and collaborate across Canada.

The next CSC Conference will be hosted in Montreal, May 22-26, 2024. Lamoureux chairs the conference social committee and already is looking forward to the event.

“I feel lucky to have the support and confidence of Alumicor, but also of the members of CSC in this adventure,” said Lamoureux. “Getting involved in associations such as CSC are opportunities to learn about our industry and make us better people in many ways.”

In addition to her volunteer roles with DCC-CSC, Lamoureux is an active member of the AVFQ, Quebec’s glazing and fenestration association, and co-chairs the Commercial Technical Committee–Commercial Sector. As a member of the Fenestration Glazing and Industry Alliance (FGIA), she also represents Alumicor, Tubelite and Apogee Enterprises, Inc., and contributes to the Architectural Products Council’s Methods of Test Committee.

Working closely with Canadian architectural design professionals, Lamoureux assists with evaluation, selection and specification of aluminum-framed fenestration systems for commercial building envelopes. Drawing from her industry experience and Alumicor’s expertise, she helps support project goals for performance, appearance, sustainability, on-time scheduling and long-term value.

Supporting valuable industry-wide education and excellence, Alumicor was a Platinum sponsor of the CSC Conference 2023 and exhibitor in the Connections Café. During the conference, Steve Gusterson, Alumicor’s vice president of pre-construction design in Canada, was presented the CSC Life Membership Award, the highest accolade that CSC can bestow on an individual. Among his many achievements, he was inducted into the prestigious CSC College of Fellows, is a past chair and director of CSC Toronto, received Chapter Awards of Merit in 2009 and 2013, and earned the Programme Director’s Awards for Education in 2014 and 2022.

Alumicor’s Jeff Thompson, regional director of sales for central and western Canada, and Stephen Tyne, client development manager, joined in celebrating their colleagues and staffing the booth at CSC. Tyne is a member of the CSC Vancouver chapter. Thompson, a CSC Winnipeg member, previously received the CSC’s 2012 Russell W. Cornell Award, a 2009 Programme Director’s Award for Education, a 2008 Chapter Award of Merit and 2008 Eureka Club Award.
