This sustainable building, built using our Glulam beams, includes many features that are a part of the City of Edmonton’s commitment to the environment. The exhibit includes a green roof to minimize storm water runoff, drought-tolerant planting and dark-sky compliant exterior lighting. The Artic Shores exhibit also features a unique water treatment system. The water in the seal and sea lion pools is treated on-site with a combination of mechanical equipment and subsurface saltwater wetland so it can be reused in the animals’ aquatic home.
We were able to maintain an impressive pace and Structurlam was a big part of that as the provider of the CLT panels. They made sure that everything was CNC milled to exact precision.Karla Fraser, Senior Project Manager, Urban One, Vancouver, BC
