"UBC has a concept where they view their campus as a living laboratory," says Richard Aarestad, Ledcor project manager.
"Using the thin-shell panels will help earn LEED points for reaching 42 percent energy savings, and it is in line with UBC's sustainability mandate," Aarestad says. Instead of investing in sophisticated mechanical systems, the project design team took a three-prong approach: insulate the exterior with dense concrete panels, supply fresh air direct to the suites and supplement heat with electric baseboards when necessary. "We believe that this combination creates a comfortable living environment for students and minimizes the amount of energy used," Aarestad says. The panels have also been the single most challenging aspect of the job. The use of thin-shell precast panels is relatively new to the area around UBC. "The industry here has done a lot of projects with sandwich panels, but not a lot of smaller, thin-shell sandwich panels that work in conjunction with window wall glazing systems," Aarestad says. "For some users, this will be the only opportunity they will have to get a new space for many years and they want it to be done right," Aarestad says. "That means we must be very adaptable and accommodate changes on the fly." When the Ponderosa Commons project is completed, UBC will have increased its stock of on-campus student residences and created space that will help spice up its campus environment. For Ledcor, the lessons learned on the project will surely be passed on to future work. "We've learned a lot about thin-shell precast systems and doing as much as possible to nail down user requirements as early as you can," Aarestad says.
