LEED Gold Certified Welcome Centre with Timber Curtain Walls

 

LEED Gold Certified Welcome Centre with Timber Curtain Walls

The exploration centre at Laval’s Parc de la Rivière des Mille-Iles, a spectacular urban wildlife reserve, required an aesthetic solution that could fill the building with natural light while also providing passive house certification-level thermal insulation, superior wind resistance, and greater air tightness.



To fulfill these requirements Unicel Architectural installed 1,000-plus square feet of RAICO THERM+ H-I timber curtain wall featuring black spruce glulam, triple glazing, and aluminum caps. The curtain wall features proven and tested RAICO glazing and sealing including stepless thermal insulation through RAICO’s Insulation Block Technology, along with an integrated drainage system, helping the building achieve LEED Gold certification.
