The Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence

York University Toronto

The Brief

Certification: LEED Silver

System Used: TB50 Structurally Glazed Curtain Wall System  

Location:  York University, Toronto 

Client: Laing O Rourke

Architect: ZAS Architects

The Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence officially opened on April 8th, 2016. Designed by ZAS Architects + Interiors and built by construction firm Laing O’Rourke, it is the new home of the Lassonde School of Engineering.

The building is designed with a student-centric philosophy in mind that challenges the look of a traditional engineering school. The structure’s unique architectural design reflects its main purpose – a hub for entrepreneurship, collaboration and creativity.

The Bergeron Centre - LEED Silver

Complex Design

The Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence has a cloud-like triangular glass facade, it’s comprised of a series of triangles positioned according to a precise and complex algorithm. Evoking the properties of a cloud, it reflects light and pattern across campus and into the interior.

The Challenge

As the intricate triangular-shaped facade design on the Bergeron Centre was arranged in a mathematically derived Penrose Pattern that never repeats. This meant that every one of the buildings 8,000 triangular metal panels and windows were unique.  

Our structurally glazed TB50 curtain wall system was installed on this project. The glass is secured by means of specially designed toggles providing the external facade with a flush, uninterrupted surface.
