RCMP "K" Division Headquarters

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

“We are very pleased with the fenestration component,” said architect Ron Swart. “We went through

He continued, "The insulating glass had to meet certain expectations, and it not only met, but exceeded them. The glass is a significant part of the architectural expression of the building, and from that point, it was very important we succeed, which I think we did."
