LEED NC "Golden" Certification
Concordia University Perform Centre
The Perform Centre at Concordia University is a state-of-the-art clinical research facility of 8,000 m2. Entirely dedicated to promoting better health through prevention, the building was designed as a research and teaching facility, while providing community services for the area. The Perform Centre's design is significant for its bold use of colour, integration of materials and innovative lighting concept.
"We have paid particular attention to the use of natural light and windows to harmonize the various parts of the building", explains Dino Barbarese, one of the architects who designed the Perform Centre.
Sobriety of form and long flowing lines required materials that could sustain this design. The flat surface of the SAL linear diffuser seems to merge with the wall, creating continuity, even underlining it.
In the service zones, the DAL 358 high induction diffusers harmonize with the sobriety of the design.
The Perform Centre was awarded Québec's Grand Prix
du Design in the Healthcare category on
December 14, 2011.
