Schöck's Isokorb® structural thermal breaks add energy efficiency and thermal comfort to residents of Vancouver’s LIDO Tower.
The 21-story residential tower in Vancouver's False Creek neighbourhood is a luxury development with 32 cantilevered balconies that are connected to the buildings structure with Isokorb® thermal insulating elements.
The developer, Bosa Properties, understands the importance of structural thermal connections for cantilevered balconies in avoiding potential moisture and condensation that could lead to mold growth. In a high-rise luxury residence, balconies are an important feature. The end result is a more comfortable and more efficient building for both the occupants and the owners.
