BCIT Living Labs Lecture: Creating a Prefabricated Modular Envelope & Curtainwall system for BCITs Tall Timber Student Housing Building

A Living Labs Lecture

Creating a Prefabricated Modular Envelope & Curtainwall system for BCITs Tall Timber Student Housing Building

BCIT’s new student housing building makes use of prefabricated elements to allow for faster and more efficient construction.

A key part of this is a specially designed prefabricated Modular Envelope (PME) & Curtainwall system that is installed onto the mass-timber assemblies. The core of this design is a factory-assembled modular exterior wall that will deliver a quality, interlocking, airtight assembly. This also needs to deliver improved thermal performance to meet the energy performance standards.

This is manufactured by Flynn in Surrey before being delivered to site for installation.

This Living Labs lecture will look at the design and installation process for this crucial element of the building.  It brings together the core team of experts who worked on the system: structural engineers Fast and Eps, envelope consultants RDH, and manufacturers Flynn to provide a thorough overview of this bespoke solution.
