Project

Saputo Processing Facility and Offices

In 2021, GlasCurtain completed its first industrial application for Quebec-based dairy company Saputo: a new milk processing facility and offices located in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, just east of Vancouver. With a budget of $240 million, this ambitious project was undertaken with the goal of better serving the growing Western Canadian dairy market. This expansive facility boasts over 350,000 square feet of interior space, much of which is for the processing facility. GlasCurtain’s fibreglass-framed curtain wall systems were the ideal choice for this project, particularly the demanding processing areas, since the intense cleaning required to meet national hygiene standards precluded the use of aluminum framing, which would completely corrode in such an environment. The only alternative to fibreglass was stainless steel framing, which would have been more capital intensive than fibreglass and also not made in Canada. This building was designed by TKA+D and completed in 2021.
