Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) New Academic Building (NAB)
Concordia University of Edmonton’s (CUE) New Academic Building (NAB) stands as a testament to GlasCurtain’s innovative approach, marking our first venture into field applications of VIG technology. Crafted with precision by Reimagine Architects and Najfeldt Architect, this cutting-edge educational facility boasts 55 offices, 22 breakout rooms, 15 classrooms, 3 labs, 2 lecture theatres, and a spacious two-storey underground parkade.
Situated in Edmonton, AB and still under construction, this project will be the first in North America to utilize triple-glazed Vacuum Insulated Glass (VIG) units, enhancing the center-of-glass performance by a staggering 50% compared to traditional triple-glazing. This groundbreaking VIG glazing, paired with our industry-leading Thermaframe 8 fibreglass framing system, will culminate in the most thermally efficient curtain wall North America has ever seen.
Such an ambitious undertaking wouldn’t have been achievable without the backing of the Smart Sustainable Resilient Infrastructure Association (SSRIA). Steering this monumental project to completion is the esteemed Chandos Construction as the General Contractor.
