Stantec rose to the challenge announcing the presence of the engineering precinct in the heart of the campus

Across Canada, there’s been a significant increase in interest in engineering programs—recognizing this shift, the University of Manitoba needed to expand to accommodate the potential for an increase in enrollment. They turned to us to design and commission their new facility.

In this building, the vertically integrated service block contains stacked mechanical and electrical services, washrooms, housekeeping rooms, data rooms, and service elevator, and is bookended with glazed stairwells. Adjacent is the primary circulation spine that connects all the floors and provides access to each program block. 

The basement level houses the undergraduate study complete with a two-story light-wall, and the lower level also contains biomedical and electrical engineering labs. The ground floor shop block is distinguished by black granite stack bond masonry shell, and houses six project rooms, paint booth, weld shop, chassis and dynamometer test facility and electric vehicles lab. The academic block is defined by black fritted insulating vision glass and dual-glazed spandrels set within vertical, deep black aluminum curtain wall framing. 

Once complete, the department of engineering at the University of Manitoba will have new facilities, and as a result, the increased ability to attract and be ready for new students and faculty.

Constructing a building without considering energy usage or commissioning is like climbing up a mountain alone, in the rain, without a map
