Landmark Gardens, Calgary AB, 2016 – 2018 Construction
Whether you’re a Property Manager who needs assistance with a challenging project, or an engineer looking to develop a career in the exciting field of Building Science, JRS should be at the top of your list. We have offices in Vancouver, Calgary and Seattle. We worked on the Landmark Gardens project from initial concept design to construction completion.
The Board at Landmark Gardens wished to upgrade the building envelope of their 4-storey steel stud and concrete condominium buildings. The 35-year-old metal siding, windows, and doors were no longer performing as desired, and temperatures in units were uncomfortable for much of the year.
JRS provided expert advice and guidance to the board through the design process, exploring various cladding options, insulation upgrades, and window and door replacement options for long-term durability and improved performance. JRS’ detailed 3D renderings aided the board in their aesthetic considerations, while improved energy efficiency calculations and fiscal considerations influenced performance upgrade decisions. The end result included new fibre cement board rainscreen cladding, all new windows and doors, and repaired concrete balconies with aluminum and glass railings, all of which provided great value to unit owners.
JRS’ services included:
• Design development with 3D renderings
• Full drawing and specification package
• Tender services to qualified approved bidders
• Field services and contract administration
• Enhanced window testing services
• Structural remediation services
