Building performance codes have become more rigorous in Canada, especially in the Ontario Province with SB-10 standards. Architects are looking for more options to meet these code requisites, and projects in Ottawa such as St. Patrick’s, Tweedsmuir and Cathedral Hill are setting the bar.
These three projects are currently in construction in Ottawa, and all share the similarity of using Isokorb concrete thermal breaks, yet they are distinctive in building design and purpose. The St. Patrick’s home is a short and long term care facility, Tweedsmuir a low rise development in the Westboro neighborhood, and Cathedral Hill is a high rise condo/apartment building in downtown Ottawa.
