9Triple8 Building

The story of a revolution

To facilitate the installation and quality of manufacturing, Scorpio Stone performed a 3-dimensional scan as-built of the structure before engineering the granite panels. By converting the as-built into a workable 3D model, we were able to manufacture the stone locally and assure the accuracy of panel dimensions when creating cut-tickets for production.

Before its renovation, the 9Triple8 building in Downtown Edmonton was covered in architectural precast concrete panels.

Our cladding project management ensured this project was completed in a timely manner, with less onsite cutting and an elevated anchorage system.
