The new RBC Centre reflects the reinvention of Canada’s largest and one of its oldest banking institutions. RBC selected Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), considered one of the most respected architectural design practices in the world to design this one-of-a-kind LEED® Silver certified tower. KPF turned to Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® to engineer and supply the building envelope including 420,000 square feet of custom curtain wall, solar control glass for the upper floors and sound-resistant laminated glass for the lower floors. “When you are designing projects of this scale and magnitude, you need partners that are well versed in customization, engineering and testing. Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® engineers worked very closely with our design team to ensure that our aesthetic and performance requirements were met,” stated Joshua Chaiken.
