The Vancouver Test Hut Facility

The Vancouver Test Hut is a 900 square foot field testing facility located in Coquitlam, BC, on the rooftop of the two story commercial office building occupied by team member and builder, Gauvin 2000 Construction Ltd. The rooftop location was chosen because of the increased security offered by the controlled access through the building and for the unobstructed exposure to the elements in all directions. The test facility is designed to accommodate seven wall test panels on each cardinal direction (a total of 28 wall test panels) and three roof test panels on each of the north and south roof slopes (a total of 6 roof test panels).
