The reasons for choosing IKO are all around you

Brookside Intermediate School

The new $24 million Brookside Intermediate School is a two-story building located near the town hall of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s, N.L. The grades five through nine school includes a gymnasium, commercial kitchen, library and resources centre, home economics room, science labs, a technology and fabrication lab suite, two music rooms, an art room, and a computer lab. With 31 classrooms, the school was designed for approximately 500 students and can accommodate up to 700.

The challenge

The Brookside Intermediate School project demanded a rugged mechanically attached two-ply SBS roofing system that would perform well in the extreme weather conditions common to the province.

The solution

This signature IKO project provides outstanding performance in both roof and wall systems. IKO Enerfoil™ was utilized as the masonry cavity wall insulation due to its high R-value per inch and weather-resistant aluminum facers. IKO’s AccuCut™ custom-cutting system was employed to ensure the best fit possible for the wall insulation.

“Building envelope contractors have been asking for this factory-milled cutting service, and we are pleased it is now available across Canada,” says Tim Wrigley, IKO Atlantic provinces technical manager.

From the through-wall flashing, air barriers, insulation, and mastics on the walls to the durable two-ply SBS modified-bitumen roofing system, this IKO building envelope package offers a sustainable solution that is ideally suited to a school environment.
