Hotel Roofs Frame Canadian Rockies View
Concrete roof tiles on the Moose Hotel & Suites buildings meet
national park requirement that large-scale developments
enhance views of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

T

he newly completed Moose Hotel & Suites complex in picturesque Banff, Alberta, Canada, offers four-star lodging to tourists looking to experience a place known for exceptional natu-

ral beauty. It is one of the largest hotel developments to be built in the
area since the Canadian federal government enacted its 1998 commercial
growth cap. Devised to prevent any large-scale developments from destroying the general beauty of the national park, the growth cap requires
all new projects to enhance views of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The
Moose Hotel & Suites does just that.
Developer Banff Caribou Properties, also located in Banff, has built
and operated a number of quality hospitality facilities in the area over the
years, fueled by a true appreciation for the region's unparalleled land and
views. They understood that the 174-room Moose Hotel & Suites would
not only need to provide much-needed lodging for the area's thriving
tourism industry, but would also need to aesthetically complement the
natural surroundings and satisfy government regulations.
Longtime Banff Caribou Properties collaborator and architect Ted
Darch, owner of Calgary-based E. J. Darch Architect Ltd, envisioned a
hotel-building layout that would take advantage of, and complement, the
views. He designed the hotel to resemble a village with a courtyard placed
in the center as a means for capturing the visual drama of the mountains.
The roofing contractor selected for the project, Brock Hanson, CEO
of Banff-based Rocky Mountain Sundeck & Roof, boasts a longtime relationship with the developer, having completed many roof projects for the
lodging leader over the years. Both architect and contractor worked together to ensure the roof, as a major focal point of the property, helped
the hotel meet strict building guidelines. Their roof solution was also designed to withstand Canada's subarctic weather and to provide an aesthetic worthy of gracing a large new hotel in a renowned national park.
Rocky Mountain Sundeck and Roof was key in the selection of Boral
Roofing's (Irvine, CA) Saxony Slate 900 red-tile roof for the project, and
the region's weather patterns were a paramount driver in that choice. As
part of the Alberta province of Western Canada, Banff 's climate features
winters that drop as low as -40 F, with 15 to 40 in. of precipitation, primarily snow, falling each year.
The custom-manufactured concrete tile is engineered to be an endur-

ing roofing solution. Concrete tile provides high energy efficiency, while
insulating spray foam helps maintain the indoor temperature of the guest
rooms and amenity areas, providing better indoor comfort and reducing
the hotel's overall energy demands and costs.
Because the property is essentially located in a forest, the tile's Class A
Roofing for the Moose Hotel & Suites buildings was chosen to meet Canadian federal government commercial growth-cap regulations that require any large-scale developments to enhance views of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
