Client wanted to convert this 1913 Street Car heritage building into a LEED certified, green oriented local community epicentre. Multiple challenges were present giving the crumbling original structure, strict heritage building codes’ and LEED requirements.
Guycan removed entire original BUR roofing system over various concrete and wooded deck areas. The R-value of the building was then dramatically increased by installing Polyisocyanurate insulation (R) which increased heat retention. A 50 mil PVC membrane was then mechanically fastened which provides the building with incredible cooling benefits and exceeds LEED requirements. The building now functions as a community centre and a multi-use park for the local community.
