Fairmore Business Park

The Project

Business parks around the globe could learn lessons from the Fairmore Business Park. The design team created a development plan for four distinct buildings. The firm did not want to design another drab row of office and commercial buildings along the Calgary Pacific, CP Rail and C Train tracks, which all line the site. Instead, the buildings were positioned on the site's edges and architectural features were added to each unique structure to bring visual interest and attract tenants. Metal wall panels from Kingspan were selected to enhance the aesthetics and bring needed fire ratings.

Optimo & MF Fire Rated HF

The finished product looks fantastic and really makes a statement for the development. So many people I encounter think of Kingspan as cold storage panels. But the truth is these are high-end architectural panels with capabilities beyond that market.

Curb Appeal with Safety in Mind

Made from a mineral wool core bonded with metal facings, the mineral fiber 4-inch-thick fire-rated metal panels are suitable for fire-rated wall applications. The insulation is exterior of the building structure, creating a superior thermal envelope because it reduces thermal bridging that is typical of cavity wall systems. Kingspan's Optimo Embossed insulated metal panels are flexible in design and can be applied to multiple design applications. The single-component insulated metal panel minimizes construction delays and produces faster on-site installation compared to multi-component wall systems.


Building with a Panel of Experts

“The building and design team pulled together to make the integrity and aesthetics of the wall panels a top priority. We had to install panels around canopies and consider intricate details that required meticulous planning. Our experience with Kingspan products and the knowledge and skills of our crews prepared us for this challenging project that was completed to perfection.”
