Construction innovation and Building Envelope Protection
Dave's check list
Acclaimed building science specialist, Dave Ricketts, on the five most important things to look for before you buy &endash; and how Concord measures up.
Find out what kind of wall assembly is being used. For high rise buildings it should be a rainscreen wall with a full waterproof membrane and the insulation placed on the exterior side of the membrane.
This is how Concord Pacific builds all of their buildings.
Look for a long term developer. They have a vested interest in not having problems with their buildings since they have many more that they want to sell.
At Concord Pacific Place, this has meant that rainscreen technology and expert envelope consultants have been used since 1995, long before the Leaky Condo crisis became an issue.
Ask an architect or an engineer friend to find out more about the technical aspects of the building for you. They are probably in a better position to ask the right questions and understand the answers.
Concord Pacific uses the best rainscreen wall technology, better windows, and ensures attention to detail by the design architects and the top building envelope consultants.
Find out what kind of window assembly is being used. They should be rainscreen designed and have been tested using the CSA A440 Window Selection Guide standard test pressure levels for high rise buildings.
Concord Pacific uses only rainscreen window design, builds full scale mock-ups of the windows integrated with the walls, and has an ongoing performance testing program through-out construction.
See if the building can be cost effectively maintained. Are there roof anchors in place which allow access to all walls for maintenance purposes?
Concord Pacific Place has roof anchors to facilitate access to all building walls, with high quality wall and window assemblies to minimize maintenance costs.
One of the industry's most influential experts on building envelope problems and solutions, David Ricketts was retained by the Barrett Commission to help develop the technical recommendations for the Barrett Report, and has recently been appointed to the Provincial Advisory Council for the New Homeowner Protection Office.
Dave is the author of numerous authoritative industry reports and guides on building envelope practices in the coastal climate of British Columbia, and is the President of the British Columbia Building Envelope Council.
Security and Technology integration
Peace and quiet, peace of mind
Complementing Concord's quality construction is a technology-driven security "net" that creates an imperceptible barrier around your home, ensuring your personal security, safety, and comfort. Only personally encoded key fobs permit entry to parkades, building lobbies, elevators, and residential floors.
All building entries and exits are monitored, allowing you to screen visitors on your television. In-suite security systems also have the option of full-time monitoring service.
Plug in to the 21st century.
As Canada's first fibre-optic community, Concord Pacific Place is wired for the future. Our state-of-the-art Fiber Net system delivers instant Internet access and on-line multimedia 180 times faster than a standard modem.
Warranty and customer service
Standing the test of time
From towers to townhomes, Concord Pacific Place has been built to stand the test of time. Concord Pacific offers all purchasers the security of a warranty package unmatched in the industry.
The Concord Pacific Advantage Warranty.
This comprehensive warranty package protects your investment in your new home with comprehensive structural and in-suite warranties. Our 10 Year New Home Warranty offers protection against the occurrence of major structural defects in the building, enhancing the investment potential of your home.
Our unparalleled, 5 Year In-Suite Warranty, the first in Canada, protects purchasers from potential construction or design faults, including water penetration. Both warranties are completely transferable to the new owners should you decide to sell your home.
On-Site Warranty Service.
While many developments provide warranty protection, few offer the expertise of an on-site team of building trades professionals to deal with day-to-day maintenance and repairs. Nowhere else in Canada will you find an experienced team of warranty service professionals responsible for your new home for a period of five years after construction.
Urban Design and Building Architecture
Designed for living
Concord Pacific's internationally recognized architect, James Cheng, on inspiration, context, and the logic of design.
"The obvious starting point for the design of Concord Pacific Place is the spectacular waterfront location. The neighbourhood was designed to take advantage of the unique crescent shape of the site. The buildings are carefully oriented to the south-facing waterfront views, not to look at each other, but past each other to the water. This way, even buildings further back from the waterfront have unobstructed sight lines and plenty of light and space.
It's such an incredible challenge to have the opportunity to create an entire neighbourhood from scratch, and in this extraordinary location, it's even more about creating an entire waterfront lifestyle."
