BMW Canada Corporate Headquarters


BMW Group Canada’s LEED® Silver-certified headquarters in Richmond Hill, Ontario, features a combination of Alumicor’s aluminum-framed, stick-built, thermally broken ThermaWall 2600 curtainwall and operable vents to create the energy-efficient building envelope on its corporate complex. The curtainwall can achieve a total system U-factor of 1.8 W/m²•K (0.32 Btu/hr•ft²•°F) with triple-glazed IGUs and all non-metallic spacer.

Designed by Sweeny&Co Architects, the four-story, 6,410 m² (69,000 ft²) building encompasses office spaces, as well as BMW’s marketing school, and state-of-the-art training labs for future technicians and dealers. The result is a building that attracts top talent to BMW with high-performance features that reinforce its brand.
