Curating the aging process with good vibrations
We are currently working on a project for a new engineering building in Surrey, BC for Simon Fraser University. A key part of the building’s architectural expression is an undulating façade element that recalls the appearance of printed electronic circuit boards. In order to ensure long term durability and reduce maintenance concerns, we have chosen to express these elements using precast concrete cladding.
Typical to any precast panel installation, the fabricator will provide a sample of the final mix ratios and casting process to showcase the range of finish expected on the completed façade. Recently our fabricator provided us with three 500 x 500mm samples of the formliner to be used on the façade of the SFU SE3P project in Surrey.
