How Broadway Tech Centre in Vancouver Inspired Us to Add Sunshades and Louvers to Our Portfolio

Broadway Tech Centre's Advanced High-Tech Office Complex in Downtown Vancouver Benefits from Louvers and Sunshades
In our opinion, Broadway Tech Centre is one of the best illustrations of a project located in downtown Vancouver utilizing sunshades and louvers as a major visual and performance element of the exterior design. The 8 Building office ‘campus’ was designed by B+H Architects, who relished the challenge to transform 17 acres of under-utilized warehouse space into a world-class business campus and distribution centre. The 17-acre site was specifically designed for tenants seeking an exceptional and high-tech working environment for their employees and The Broadway Tech Centre was subsequently awarded LEED USGBC-CS Platinum Certification.
When we originally worked on this key project with Justin Thompson and his team it was in relation to waterproofing materials, but since this project, and having appreciated its extensive use of sunshades and louvers, InterCoast have added the aesthetically pleasing yet high performance Ten Plus range to our portfolio.
Ten Plus are a significant Canadian louver and sunshade manufacturer with innovative and well-engineered products designed to cope with our particular Canadian weather, so thanks to the Broadway Tech Centre project we understood what a contribution their expertise in this field could make to other successful sustainable construction projects.
