T3 Bayside is a 10-storey timber office building that will provide best-in-class, creative-use office space.

KEY CONSIDERATIONS

Challenge One

A highly glazed façade was used to maximize views of the wood structure and create a bright interior environment. Meeting project energy performance goals required careful attention to curtain wall thermal performance and detailing.

Solution One

Curtain wall details, including feature ribbon and shadow box panels, were designed to create a contiuous thermal barrier. Thermally broken connections and custom insulation detailing were implemented and thermal simulations showed that performance requirements were met.
