Flynn Project: Coast Capital – Vancouver

The eye-catching seamless curtain wall that adorns the new headquarters of Coast Capital Savings is a dramatic reflection of the modern spaces within. The façade contributes to the building’s LEED Gold certification.

The alternating positive and negative slopes that give the building its distinctive shape was the main engineering challenge for Flynn’s team.

Flynn designed a unitized system to handle the angles, as well as the compound transitions found on all outside corners.

Tightly bounded on two elevations by an active rapid transit station and busy roadway, work had to be completed within a tight space and schedule.

Flynn worked closely with Ledcor Construction Ltd., PCI Developments Corporation, and Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership Architects on a design-assist basis to ensure adherence to the agreed budget, the desired aesthetic, and an aggressive time frame.
