UBC – Exchange Residence and Bus Exchange at Gage South
Project Challenge – Located above the first station of Vancouver’s Canada Line rapid transit system, the design vision was of a 115m long [375′] glass roof that curves like a wave to welcome visitors to the West Coast. While the first challenge was for the hardware to accommodate the facetted glass, the larger challenge was to find overall cost-efficiencies so this vision could be done within budget and not be value-engineered out.
Creating overall project cost savings with a custom part became the mantra for this system design.
In collaboration with the architect, we designed the YVR Arm Bracket to have the following features:
