University Projects Portfolio

Location: Halifax, N.S.

Dalhousie University's Life Sciences Centre (LSC) is topped with a large skylight encasing a greenhouse used for studies of plant life.


Alumitech will be stripping the existing skylight from the building structure to make way for a more modern, sleek and weather resistant product. We will be constructing a strip window from Kawneer's 1600 System complete with transparent vision glass at the base of the greenhouse.


Atop the strip window, as a continuation of the system, we will be securing a JGS Greenhouse/Skylight system to the structural aluminum rafters. The JGS Greenhouse system will be glazed with polycarbonate sheets.
