FAST Thermal Bracket™ Offset Shelf Angle Support
This 7-storey project features commercial space on the ground floor and residential space above with a commanding harbour view

“The impressive building design will stand out with simplicity and respect for the current neighbourhood surroundings and rich history of Ochterloney Street in Downtown Dartmouth.” (Co-work Architecture, 2017. Retrieved here)

FERO FAST Thermal Brackets were used at every floor in the building envelope design to ensure continuous insulation and optimized thermal performance. Using FAST Thermal Brackets enabled the design team to:

  1. Incorporate a thermal break instead of a thermal bridge in the smart, energy-efficient shelf angle design;
  2. Meet or exceed energy code requirements;
  3. Achieve energy and cost efficiencies; and
  4. Provide easy installation for the contractors.

Overview

Greenpoint Landing is a 22-acre master-planned development site located on the Brooklyn waterfront with a view of the Manhattan skyline, bringing a mix of ten residential towers and low-rise buildings, a new public school, and four acres of parkland. The buildings are located on reclaimed industrial use lands, and the brick veneer utilized in the building design provides continuity with the historical neighborhood.
