Overview

Project overview

Situated in Toronto, Canada, 139 Bond Avenue stands out with its unique features, showcasing a church adorned with a retrofitted façade spanning 10,000 square feet. This remarkable transformation encompasses both solar and non-solar sections, totaling 75kW in solar capacity. What makes this building truly special is its incorporation of religious iconography into the cladding, harnessing solar technology to generate energy.

Originally constructed over five decades ago, this 50-year-old structure underwent a remarkable metamorphosis into a self-sustaining power plant, all while enhancing its external aesthetic appeal. Additionally, the utilization of a prefab wall system facilitated a swift installation process, resulting in reduced costs and minimal on-site disruption.

Solar Facade

Our Solar Facades are designed to effortlessly substitute your building's existing facade, transforming it into a dynamic solar energy-harvesting surface. At the heart of each panel lies a sturdy aluminum honeycomb core, coupled with a layer of high-performance solar cells, making every piece an efficient source of renewable energy.

Overtop the energy generating layer is the customizable exterior– a versatile canvas that can recreate any pattern or color. This adaptability allows the fusion of aesthetically pleasing architectural solar facades with the functional benefits of BIPV technology. It’s a harmonious blend of form and function, bringing to life facades that not only captivate the eye but also contribute positively to the environment.
