This new facility will add instructional space to be utilized across all departments at the university. It will create a central location for 21 new, state-of-the-art, various sized classrooms with space for student services. Supporting the master plan vision, it will provide an integrated north-south access through the campus and provide student and visitors with access to different modes of transportation. This building will be designed to meet LEED® Gold certification and Toronto Green Building Standard Tier 2. The building is currently in design with energy efficiency as a top priority. Energy recovery is utilized in outdoor air, variable refrigerant flow, perimeter heating, and service hot water systems to reduce the carbon footprint and energy costs for building operation.
