Southgate Volkswagen


The Project

When Southgate Volkswagen decided to make the move to a newer, larger space in the south side of Edmonton, they seized the opportunity to create a beautiful, open-concept showroom utilizing striking custom glass elements and making the most of their increased space. They engaged All Weather Windows COMMERCIAL to ensure a creative and seamless completion of the many commercial glazing elements in their new location.

All Weather Windows provided design and project management support, along with assembly and installation of a variety of commercial glazing products. A custom curtain wall stretching across the entire front of the dealership—and extending to most of the other walls—was created in addition to many custom interior glazing elements.

The Process

Coming on board in the fall of 2011, All Weather Windows COMMERCIAL provided an assortment of services during the construction of the new Volkswagen dealership including design support, project management, fabrication and installation of various custom products.

Custom Curtainwall

Resulting in a stunning visual effect, a custom curtainwall was implemented on many areas of the dealership, including the entire front wall and entrance area. This opened up the space and allowed easy viewing of the entire lot—ideal for Volkswagen’s customers and employees.


Immense skylights running the length of the building were installed to further open up the space and make the most of the surrounding natural light.

Glass Railings & Barrier-Free Offices

The COMMERCIAL team created and installed a network of barrier-free glass office spaces and doors, along with custom hand rails on stairwells and mezzanines, extending the beautiful and seamless open-concept appearance
to the second floor of the dealership.

The Challenges

After noticing design details that needed to be ironed out in the schematics, All Weather Windows COMMERCIAL liaised with the original engineers—located in Germany—to implement the necessary design revisions.

No Room for Error

The challenge of installing two 137-foot-long skylights was compounded by a design that called for the enormous panels to be placed within four millimetres of one another—leaving no margin for error. All Weather Windows COMMERCIAL completed seamless installation of the skylights, producing a truly stunning result.

Immense Installation

The implementation of the custom curtainwall running along several sides of the dealership required an extensive installation system. With each panel weighing in excess of 500 pounds, a system of computerized suction cups and cranes was utilized to seamlessly complete the striking piece.
