IMF – International Marine Floatations
Project info: Located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Directly situated on the Pacific Ocean. Used to house a $35 million yacht.
Building Size: 54’ x 180’ Texan Marine Series
Why Pavilion: International Marine Floatation came to Pavilion for their expertise in the marine boat storage industry. IMF required a custom engineered structure to house a customer’s yacht. Pavilion’s engineering department worked closely with IMF to custom design the building on IMF’s Concrete floats.
Marine Building design specifics: Floats are site specifically designed and engineered to carry the weight of the building and are designed to float 18” above water with the weight of building. Each yacht enclosure has a special design to allow for full ventilation to reduce condensation within the building. Fabric roll up doors are installed, engineered and manufactured specifically for each application. There is a mechanical and parts room in the building. Mezzanine with office space is optional feature that can be added to any building. Pavilion designs all marine boat shelters to meet the International Building and Fire Code.
