Focusing on collaboration and transparency as the foundation for leadership in engineering fields

As the first project coming out of the Stantec-led 2013 Master Plan, this 105,000 square foot building utilizes building systems that speak to the permanence and longevity of the institution while offering durability for the decades ahead. Connecting the ground floor to the existing Campus Center, the new four-story building features an open-air atrium topped by a skylight filling the entire interior space with natural light. The first and second floors feature public gathering, dining and collaborative spaces spilling out from the central atrium, focusing on creating dynamic social spaces for students. The third and fourth floors consist of additional collaborative spaces and environments for research, student support, media resources, individual focus and group project work.

While affording a strong, timeless and permanent structure, the interiors have been designed to afford optimum flexibility. With power and technology woven throughout, the building can easily transform to meet untold academic needs while also affording adaptability to any future programs or space reconfigurations that cannot yet be foreseen.
