Providing architectural and industrial buildings design for Centennial College’s new Aerospace Department facility

We embarked on a mission to help Centennial College achieve their goal of advancing aerospace knowledge and technologies. How? By providing the architectural and industrial buildings design to create a sustainable, elegant, and inspiring campus with more than 50,000 square feet of classroom and lab space. It also features over 40,000 square feet of hanger space and 10,000 square feet of student amenity areas and library resources.

The new Aerospace Campus exemplifies the spirit of aerospace technology. Plus, we capitalized on the opportunity to adapt space left by former de Havilland hangar at Downsview Park. Inside the hangar, new labs and learning spaces for aviation engineering and mechanics will share space with a broad range of student services, including admissions, a library, and dining options.

Drawing upon the site’s heritage, the new campus will display site artifacts and present information about its history. When complete, our design will open the space up to the public realm and renew a dormant chapter in Canadian aviation—all while encouraging a new generation of students to push innovation in the aerospace sector.

Tom Kyle, Principal

We need to understand the world objectively, and train ourselves on how to be helpful even if we are on the outside looking in.

Stephen Phillips, Senior Vice President, Business Leader, Buildings

As an architect, I have to consider that people inhabit the spaces I design. Every element should enhance and support the human experience.
