The 3-story addition of the building highlights the beauty of Eramosa limestone. The unique panel layout and staggered joint arrangement create a distinctive look. The transition from facade to soffits panels adds visual rhythm. The Cladify Rainscreen system improves energy efficiency with thermally broken bracket systems and thicker insulation. It also saves costs during construction due to its lightweight nature and increased stud spacing. The cladding panel system offers improved reflective acoustical properties, resulting in a quieter and more comfortable interior space.
