Vancouver’s Building Show: BuildEX

Last week we attended BuildEX in Vancouver, B.C. This was the 25th anniversary of the BuildEX conference which was scheduled in accord with the weather, providing a day of sunshine to enjoy the views of the bay and the mountains, and one day prior the snow storm- still hitting Vancouver today.

The BuildEX event showcased products and services that cover a broad scope of building technology with many focused on energy efficiency. The Exhibit of Schӧck featured Isokorb® type CM for concrete to concrete connections, along with the Schӧck Isokorb® type S22 for structural steel connections.

Within our booth we referenced the Lido residential tower by Bosa Properties, a local project that utilizes Schӧck Isokorb® at the balconies for thermal control and comfort.
