At Top Glass April 19 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont., Luc Paquet, architectural representative for Unicel Architectural Corp., 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 Architectural 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.
