DESCRIPTION:

One of the first major installations of the new tin-coated copper sheet FreedomGray™ produced by Revere Copper Products, of Rome,
New York, has been completed in Montreal. The dormitory and commercial building for the University of Quebec at Montreal was designed
by Boutros and Pratt Architects of Montreal and is located at René Lévesque and Saint-Laurent Boulevards, on the west side of the UQAM campus. It is a striking example of contemporary architecture that enlivens an underutilized section of the eastern downtown.


The 16-oz. FreedomGray™ sheet was configured in a standing seam and then installed over a slip-sheet, a membrane and an OSB
nailing surface, which provides continuous support to the copper. Cleats were used to fasten the panels to the substrate, using stainless
steel fasteners to avoid any potential for galvanic corrosion between dissimilar materials.
