Commercial — Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Subway Station

by Toni Rahn

More than 1,000 uniquely tapered zinc panels were fabricated by RHEINZINK distributor Agway Metals, Inc. for this addition to the Toronto subway system. The roof offers high solar reflectance and a long life span, and is 100% recyclable at the end of its useful life on the building. According to Trevor McGrath, Bothwell-Accurate’s Estimating Manager for cladding, “The architects wanted an ‘old-school’ appearance with hammered seams and the manner in which the flashings and counter-flashings were done. There was a painstaking amount of detailing done around the 46 skylights in the roof. Each one required custom attention.”
