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.
With Structurlam’s rigorous process, combined with their world-class technology, we receive a high quality and extremely accurate heavy timber pre-fabricated package.Jackie M. Trach, Construction Manager, PCL Construction Westcoast Inc. , Vancouver, BC
