Sunwapta Centre

The Project

Canadian consumers have a new address for shopping, services, and more — Edmonton’s Sunwapta Centre. This versatile commercial property is conveniently located in an active industrial and retail sector of Edmonton’s northwest region. The Centre is made up of three buildings on 22 acres totaling 407,000 square feet. It was designed to accommodate a variety of commercial needs including retail, industrial, and service providers requiring flexible spaces.

Kingspan’s insulated metal panels (IMPs) were used for the Centre’s construction. These high-performance IMPs are ideal for commercial and industrial market sectors, offering ease of use and cost-effectiveness in a single component insulated metal panel product.

KS Shadowline, MF Fire Rated HF & KarrierPanel

The change of the energy code in Canada will catapult the use of IMPs into almost every new building constructed. The Kingspan Certified installer program gives contractors and owners a level of confidence that their IMPs will be installed correctly.

Shaping Up

The KS Series Shadowline panel system gives architects and builders the design flexibility and options to create the looks they want combined with the functionality they require. KarrierPanel plus fin rail is a hidden fixed architectural accent system used to achieve flat faces, sharp corners, and a variety of other shapes.


Built In Benefits That Save

Both KS Series Shadowline and MF Fire Rated HF panel systems minimize construction delays with faster onsite installation compared to multi-component wall systems, helping keep projects on time and on budget. The Kingspan systems not only save on operational costs but also reduce the carbon footprint for the lifespan of the buildings.
