Centennial College Progress Campus Block A Renovation
Client : Centennial College
Area : Renovation: 8,000 sf Expansion: 3,700 sf
Program : Classrooms, Study Spaces, Meeting Rooms, Administrative and Support Spaces
Completion : September 2013
This renovation and addition to a 1970’s era academic building provides much needed offices, meeting rooms and classrooms; including the transformation of an existing entrance, creating an organized and welcoming lobby as a light-filled atrium. A large void punctured through the floorplate displays a new meeting room, and introduces natural light deep into the office spaces. This creation of a new second floor space within an existing two-storey area was carefully crafted to maintain operations within the existing facility, and respect the acoustic requirements of adjacent classrooms and offices. The project was completed in two phases which involved a 2-month demolition and structure intensifying process, including updating the required mechanical and electrical infrastructure. The addition necessitated the introduction of a new mechanical system that is integrated into the existing building controls package.
