Prefabricated Facade Update

The exterior cladding material for the tall wood Brock Commons student residence has been changed from metal to a combination of blonde wood grain and anthracite coloured high-pressure laminate panels that are made up of 70% wood-based fibers. The new cladding material will be installed on a prefabricated building envelope system measuring up to 8m in length and into which windows will be pre-installed. Glazing will wrap the corners and a metal cornice will crown the building. Installation of the prefabricated facade is scheduled to begin in May of this year.
