Canada Water Library


Schöck lends itself perfectly to Canada Water Library.

Thermal efficiency and energy saving construction issues are central to the design, and the avoidance of thermal bridging is a major consideration, as the resultant heat and energy loss are only two of the consequences. Condensation and mould growth can occur as well, which may lead to potential health and respiratory problems.

So with balconies on the south side of the building connected to the edge of the internal reinforced concrete slab, and a series of platforms on both the south and east sides, preventing the possibility of thermal bridging at these connectivity points is critical.
