Lainco: Pre-Engineered Building - Commercial
Designed and fabricated by Lainco, this new head office includes large “open-air” style areas, designed to promote collaboration, innovation and multidisciplinary team partnership for Soprema new warehouse. This energy efficient building also features indoor and outdoor parking as well as an on-site cafeteria with an outdoor terrace. The design includes a ductile perforated steel plate shear wall system, which allowed us to avoid the use of braces in the multitiered part of the complex, thus offering a great architectural freedom. In addition, this system significantly reduces ground footings compared to traditional construction. Composite steel beams were also used in this design resulting in faster installation time.
