Bromont Summit - Chalet

Client : Bromont, montagne d'expériences
Area : 556 m(6,000 ft2)
Award : 


The summit of the Bromont ski mountain has been transformed to provide a unique refuge for mountain users. In winter as in summer, they're able to contemplate the unique forms and the abundant fenestration that offers the chalet at the summit. Its structure is made of wood for its unparalleled aesthetics, especially in a natural context such as Bromont’s, and steel for its ability to reach large spans. The glue-laminated structural curtain wall measures 5.2 m (17 ft.) at its peak and was designed to resist wind speeds up to 220 km / h (140 mph). The irregular shape of the building also results in cantilevers measuring up to 4.7 m (15.5 ft) long.


TECHNICAL CHALLENGES :

  • Structural wood glue-laminated curtain wall with a maximum height of 5.2 m (17 ft) and able to withstand wind speeds up to 220 km/h (140 mph).
  • Curtain wall components with a fire resistance rating of 45 minutes on all 4 sides.
  • Roof cantilever up to 4.7 m (15.5 ft).
