About mossom creek hatchery

This rebuilding project focused on the environment, sustainability, and education. Due to its remote location from the city water supply, the building was required to be built non-combustible.

The two-story structure houses the hatchery on the ground floor and an education center upstairs. The ground floor is concrete construction with no windows, for security and fire safety. The hatchery building features a large deck over a portion of the lower hatchery, forming the roof in this area. Since the hatchery is fully enclosed, a fire-rated glass skylight installed in the deck above provides a light source.

Contraflam LITEFLAM provides a walkable, one-hour fire separation from the upper structure to the lower hatchery, and serves as a light source for the hatchery, and allow visitors to see into the hatchery and out to the surrounding forest.

The Contraflam 60-minute insulated glass (IGU) unit walkable glass floor/skylight product that was chosen features a fire-rated interior lite and offers energy savings to meet the project’s sustainability targets. A slip-resistant ceramic frit pattern provides a non-slip walkable surface for the deck, while still allowing visitors to see the hatchery from the deck, and the world outside from the space indoors.
