Sustainability on stage By Christopher Gu ly The world’s first company to develop large covered hydraulic mobile stages for music festivals and concerts, Quebec’s Groupe Stageline has taken centre stage with the province’s most energy-effi cient industrial building. Two years ago, Stageline unveiled a 3,670-square-metre, $6.5-million plant that consumes 69.2-per-cent less energy than a similar building that complies with Model National Energy Code requirements. In fact it produces no greenhouse gas emissions. The « green » plant, which is LEED-certifi ed, is also one of the first energy-effi cient prefabricated buildings in North America and among the first in Canada to meet the 2030 Challenge, points out Montreal-area architect Claude Hamelin Lalonde, FRAIC, who was part of a consortium of architects involved in the design. He explains that Stageline is committed to eco-design and minimizing the impact its products and operations have on the environment. « The company wanted a building that does the same thing – and that is both prefabricated and energy effi cient. » Murox, the business unit of Boucherville, Que.-based Canam Group Inc. that specializes in designing, manufacturing and installing high-performance building envelopes, integrated several mechanical components to reduce the amount of energy required for heating, cooling and lighting the building, made from recycled and non-volatile organic compound (VOC)-emitting materials. The high thermal-effi ciency building envelope is composed of shop-assembled wall panels, and features insulating materials and thermal barriers that provide a uniformthermal resistance of R-20, certifi ed by an independent laboratory. The interior wall facing at the Stageline plant – which has a height of continued on page 22 Beyond double-paned windows and skylights to maximize natural lighting, curtain walls along the building’s façade are also coated with low-emissivity film. « Green » Plant ALL PHOTOS : MARC CRAMER/ARCHITECT : ALLARD, HAMELIN LALONDE, ARCHITECTS IN JOINT VENTURE ARCHITECTURE CANADA ■ 21
