Here's a look at one of BCBS's past building envelope renovation projects from 2012. 6 years after completion, Maplewood Place continues to look fantastic! This comprehensive renovation included new rainscreen fibre-cement and thin-brick cladding systems, double-glazed vinyl framed windows and doors, urethane balcony membranes, aluminum guardrails and canopies with glass infill, new roof overhangs, and much more. Oh, and not to mention, a full replacement of the parking garage waterproofing membrane and landscaping components in 2010!
Sade Akinbami, EIT, has been a part of the BC Building Science team for nearly a year working as a project engineer, specializing in our renovation projects. She has a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering with a career background in Building Science.
During her time at BCBS, Sade has worked on many renovation projects. Her favorite was working on the re-cladding of a heritage building, while also taking into consideration heritage conservation parameters at every stage of the project (i.e. from assessment to preliminary design and into / during construction).
BCBS has taken part in the 7th International Conference and Exhibition on Clean Energy (ICCE 2018) at Laval University, Quebec City, Canada
Our research paper was presented by Dr. Farshid Bagheri in the conference, and published by the International Academy of Energy, Minerals & Materials in the proceeding of ICCE 2018. Access to our paper at: Bagheri - ICCE 2018 Proceedings
Our research paper studied energy use indicators of Canada’s First Non-Residential Passive House with Daycare Usage.
BC Building Science was a sponsor of the Centra Cares 21st annual Golf Tournament. After nearly a decade of participation in the tournament, it is safe to say that BCBS Cares too.
