D. Grant Construction


University of Waterloo


Perkins + Will

The University of Waterloo hired Perkins + Will and D. Grant Construction to design and build their new Autonomous Vehicle research lab, which will house ground breaking innovations in engineering once completed.

Everyone involved wanted the building to stand out with something more than a plain exposed concrete foundation. Form & Build suggested Wall Guard Concrete Faced Insulation from T-Clear. The styrofoam insulates the foundation, and the architectural detail of the concrete topping making an eye-catching finish.
