- Telus Spark Science Centre
Kalzips 65/400 Profile in Champagne Metallic was used on the roof and walls, while the perforated screen panels were the 65/400 profile in a custom colour matched Pewter. These perforated 'screen panels' allow for the night lights to shine through the screen and reflect onto the building. The colours change during the evening and are even themed during holidays which makes this building truly a spectacular evening event.
At the sloping atrium roof and bordering all windows are Alpolic Composite panels in CMX Champagne Metallic. At the front entrance bordering the Spark Sign are Alpolic Composite panels in SMX Silver Metallic. The detailed front entrance sign adds an artistic dimension to the panels demonstrating Igloo's ability to create intricate designs within the panel layout. With the TELUS Spark Science centre aiming to complete Gold LEED status, both the Kalzip and Composite panel products provide sustainability points in achieving this goal.

- Sorensen Station Parkade and Transit Terminal
The feature boxes at the sides are prismatic, so depending on angle, light and time of day, these feature boxes change colours. These feature Red Brass Prismatic, Cupprol Prismatic, Antique Prismatic, and Autumn Red Prismatic.
As Igloo is a custom design and manufacturing company we worked with the architect of the parkade to create these feature boxes. Since the architect wanted the panels encasing the 'box' all around, Igloo manufactured a custom designed steel box to fasten our panels to, and then engineered the fastening of the 'box' to the parkade. So from outside the building, and inside the parkade, you can still see the prismatic composite panels.
The design of these feature boxes was the biggest challenge to overcome with this project; the tolerances were so small, to a fraction of a millimeter. Igloo helped design and build this architectural gem and provide an unforgettable building to a family that provided so much for the city of Red Deer.
