Legacy Building Solutions’ Solar Ship Brantford off-grid hangar, a joint venture with Canadian Energy and Solar Ship, was awarded the “Game Changer Project of the Year” by CanSIA. Located in Brantford, Ontario, the 40,597-sq.ft. hangar is a fabric structure on a rigid steel frame which supports the weight of PV cells on the roof, as well as a 1.18 kPa roof rain-on-snow load. The structure is sized for the Solar Ship aircraft which has wingspan of 164 feet.

The Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) awarded its 2016 Green Building Product of the Year Award to LiteZone Glass. The insulating glass units use multiple interior layers of film rather than glass, attaining dramatically improved insulating values of R19.6 at centre of glass, and R17 for the overall window. LiteZone has also produced the units with a life span of more than 60 years.
