BC Building Science was retained by the Owners of Ocean View as the Building Envelope Consultant for a full building envelope renovation at their building. Ocean View is a three-level, wood-framed residential apartment building constructed over a below-grade cast-in-place reinforced concrete parking garage. The building contains a total of 26 residential units, and is located at 156 West 21st Street, North Vancouver.
BCBS and the Strata developed an architectural design strategy to improve the function, durability and appeal of the building exterior. Through a process of consultation and various other methods, an Architectural design scheme was developed and approved by the Strata. The renovation included the full replacement of the existing vinyl siding, balconies, patios, localized suspended slab membrane, windows, doors, canopies, skylights, and the existing fencing.
