Glazing leads to daylighting, efficiency at PCL building

To mark its 100th anniversary, Canadian-based PCL created the PCL Centennial Learning Centre, Edmonton, Alberta, a building that would serve as the new training and development hub for its companies, embrace sustainable design and reduce environmental impact. Using Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design principles, PCL was able to deliver a striking facility that consumes less energy, resulting in lower operating costs. The building design consisted of 75 percent glazed elements. The PCL Centennial Learning Centre achieved LEED Gold certification, the first private sector building in Alberta to do so, according to officials at Kawneer.
