FAST Thermal BracketTM Offset Shelf Angle Support
Two Building Forms: a linear atrium and residences; and an egg-shaped auditoria nestled in the middle

LEED Silver Certified, The Peter George Centre for Living and Learning (PGCLL) is a true hybrid building. The building design includes a linear atrium, residences and an auditoria located in the middle of the building. This “LEED Silver certified project includes optimized energy performance, low VOC materials, individual lighting and thermal controls, and water reduction measures throughout.” (DSAI, 2019)

FAST Thermal BracketTM Offset Shelf Angle Supports ("FAST Thermal Brackets") were used 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.
