Talking timber at Top Glass
February 8, 2023 By Patrick Flannery
At Top Glass April 19 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont., Luc Paquet, architectural representative for Unicel, will present Full Circle: The promise of wood glazed facades for tomorrow’s energy-efficient buildings. His session will explore how new technology and engineering are intersecting with a new understanding of the carbon footprint of building materials to create an opportunity for perhaps the oldest building material of all: wood. Unicel has developed a Passive House-certified timber curtainwall product and Paquet shares what they have learned about constructing glazed facades out of wood that previously could only be executed in aluminum. His presentation goes inside the design, engineering and installation of the modular product, with looks at actual project cases and the science behind it all. Luc Paquet is the eastern Canada Architectural Representative for Unicel Architectural, an architectural glazing fabricator based in Longueuil, Que. He brings over 25 years in sales, 13 years as an architectural representative and 10 years with Unicel to the topic.
