Glulam Creates an Elegant & Sustainable Look on Skytrain's Evergreen Line
Engineered GLT wood panels surfaced with authentic Douglas fir are featured in the design of this predominantly glass skytrain station.
The reasons for designing a predominantly glass station for this new stop on Vancouver’s Skytrain system are abundantly clear. It provides those standing on the platform with an unobstructed view of the nearby mountains, while creating a brighter, safer, more secure environment for passengers. Westdek GLT panels surfaced with authentic Douglas fir create a natural, yet sustainable look. This project was made up of multiple points on the evergreen line - Coquitlam Central station, Inlet Centre, Moody Centre, Burquitlam station, and Lafarge Lake-Douglas station.
