Hudon consortium and Julien / Coarchitecture, and Lemay Michaud, St-Gelais Montminy Architects chose Parklex as an essential part of the facade of the historic building in rural Quebec.

Project: Queenston Border Pavillion


The strong aesthetic appeal of zinc paneling lies especially in its incredible diversity: from Alpine cabins to modern museums and homes; from the avant-garde to the traditional. Roofs and façades made of titanium zinc offer more than just aesthetic advantages. Roofs and façades made of this diverse material are also environmentally friendly.

Ceramic Panels

Ceramic is an ancient material, recently designed into a Rear Ventilated Rain Screen ( RVRS ) façade. The panels are hung on rails, creating a space behind for ventilation. Installation is simply about lining up the rails. Aesthetics are unlimited: unglazed like ancient terra cotta, or glazed with colour or even artwork. In this example Engineered Assemblies assisted in the design of a rainscreen outside a brick façade that had failed. The ultimate makeover.

CPI Daylighting

CPI Daylighting translucent polycarbonate panels are designed and fabricated into walls, like the blue panels shown, and skylights, canopies and interiors. The unique and patented design fits standard construction in a simple curtain wall manner. The interior structure means there are flush walls. Increased aesthetics are matched with superior economic, thermal, durability and fire performance over glass, fibreglass and other translucent systems.

Eternit Fibre Cement and CPI Daylighting

Richard Butterworth chose Eternit and CPI daylighting, and new windows to renovate Ridgemount and Westmount High School. The end result is a school to be proud of, better R value, better daylighting and learning environment. It was done while kids were still in school, saving the school board financially.

Project: McLean Park Towers Recladding

EA and its partner Marine Cladding designed, supplied and installed an insulated system over existing ceramic brick and concrete to create a new facade for better performance and superior aeshetics. All of this was done while the tenants remained in the building.

Architect: Turner Fleischer Architects
Location: Burlington, Ontario
Product: Ceramic Panel ( Clay tile )
Project: Fortions Grocery Store no 1

Engineered Assemblies designed, supplied and provided construction services to Fortinos. This is a bold step in branding as all the other stores in the area have the typical stucco beige. It stands out. EA and its partner also built the facade rapidly to meet aggressive schedule dates, even though the tile comes from Germany.

Similar stores in Vaughan, Oakville and Stoney Creek

Reigo and Bauer designed an excellent renovation of a downtown home, using white Eternit fibre cement and zinc. Praxy Cladding Corp did the installation.

Eternit fibre cement is attractive, light and durable. It is especially good for this kind of recladding application where sound brick can take the load of rails and fibre cement panels.

Marine Cladding made this come together, mastering the math of a complex curve and the flexibility of Imetco Series 300 Zinc Roofing. The Owner receives a 25 year water tight warranty. Beautiful. Too bad it so remote.

In addition, the durable and aesthetic cladding is Eternit Natura.
