Edmonton’s J22 Taking Shape: A Multi-family Projectfrom Mike Lemen
Construction activities of several multi-family projects in downtown Edmonton, AB are taking shape. We have our sights on the J22 Development at the corner of Jasper Avenue, and 122 Street as the installation of Schöck Isokorb® for balcony features will soon begin.
The J22 Development is a mixed use project beginning Phase 3, which includes retail/commercial office space on three levels and 200 rental apartment units spanning over 10 stories above. J22 is one of many multi-family projects filling the demand for downtown rentals. A recent report by Avison Young covered vacancy reports in the Edmonton Multi-Family including news on the J22 project and the highly sought after location.
Schöck Isokorb® structural thermal break connections will be installed in the J22 residential units to mitigate thermal bridging at the concrete slab to balcony connection.
Besides energy savings, another highly valued benefit of structural thermal breaks is occupant comfort. The use of Schӧck Isokorb® allows the wall temperatures around the balcony to be uniform and consistent.
Schöck Isokorb® thermal breaks separate the continuous concrete to discontinue the transfer of the cold and heat through the slab.
The J22 development have selected to install Schöck Isokorb® load-bearing thermal insulation elements to transfer loads at the balcony and maintaining full structural integrity. They will provide a warmer interior temperature, decreasing condensation and preventing the formation of mold.
Work is completed on the underground parking structure, and the street level retail/commercial space progresses with facade brickwork.
