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.
Structurlam made the process of designing and building with CLT less mysterious and more quantifiable than other experiences we have had with new building products. We are very pleased with the results!Tim McLennan, Architect, AIBC MRAIC, Kelowna, BC
