Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada | OPACI-COAT-300 Silicone Spandrel
Project: Transportation Management Centre Where: Coquitlam, BC Fabricator: IGU Hartung Canada, Lami Lami Glass Products Glazer: Flynn Canada
BC’s brand new Transportation Management Centre has opened to serve the Pacific Gateway at the foot of the Metro Vancouver’s new 10-lane, $3B Port Mann Bridge, soon to be the widest bridge in the world.
Another feature of the building is the use of coloured glass. “All the spandrel glass is comprised of three different colours – blue and green hues – which help to give the building some subtle visual depth at no extra cost,” explains Fligg. “The spandrel consists of different substrates of PPG Solexia, Azuria and Caribia glass that create the different pattern shaded effect,” confirms Crête. “The actual spandrel is Opaci-Coat-300 silicone spandrel Medium Gray. “It is interesting to see the difference in color of spandrel. Sometimes the different shades depend on where the sun is.”
