Schlüter Systems is a 6,100m² building on a former brownfield site of 17,320 m² in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Québec. The company manufactures accessories and membrane products for the tiling industry, and the building is its Canadian headquarters. It includes office space, a studio showroom, training facility and a warehouse of products. The design incorporates Schlüter products throughout the interior, and, for the first time, utilizes a combination of their unique foam panel system and granite tiles for most of the exterior cladding. Overall, the spaces were developed for ease of maintenance, comfort, longevity, flexibility, and energy efficiency. Sustainable design strategies that were integral to the process were water collection and reuse throughout the building’s functions, a massive solar wall to reduce energy production, automated fresh air and heat exchange, and choosing durable and environmentally conscious materials. These factors together have ensured that for this $8 million building, the investment will be returned in 7 years. The project has obtained a LEED Gold certification, and has recently been awarded a Prix D’Excellence from the Ordre des Architectes du Québec.
