Construction under extreme conditions

No matter whether extreme weather conditions prevail or country-specific factors need to be considered, seele meets the challenges of every project. To accomplish complex building envelopes, extensive tests are usually necessary in advance. Particularly in the case of highly sophisticated solutions with complex geometries, the impact of extreme thermal cycling loads must be tested on critical construction details. In international projects, appropriate tests are carried out on full-scale mock-ups under extreme loads.

Weather challenges are not only faced during the planning phase, but also during installation. After all, the weather in Canada can reach extreme temperatures both in summer and winter. Snow on the roof at minus 25 degrees? Not an insurmountable problem for seele. To be a reliable partner when it comes to further assembly and silicone work in winter, seele builds heated enclosures, such as that implemented for the West Block Rehabilitation Project in Ottawa.
