The view along Pacific Street in downtown Vancouver is now transformed with the bright white panels of Porcelanosa Facades exterior cladding. A ventilated facade is a cladding system with an air cushion or cavity immediately behind which provides drainage, ventilation, and a thermal solution. It is usually an external cladding system mechanically fastened or bonded to a framework fixed to the external wall of a new or existing building.

"The Major challenge with this project was the same one we face with most retrofit projects, not knowing all the on-site conditions with the existing structure until the project is well underway. Porcelanosa was able to show its systems adaptability throughout the building process and with its sleek design the final result is a stunning building that will be a showpiece in the downtown Vancouver core for decades to come." - Rob Mutch, Brock White Material Manager, Vancouver, BC
