|Working with Bow Valley college meant working with a client who demanded leading edge technology to create the best teaching and learning space. This technology includes innovations to ensure the smallest environmental impact is made throughout the both building process and during the lifespan of the building. The South Campus project achieved this in early 2015, being awarded the LEED silver certification. Read more here.
Designing to LEED Silver standards means the seven-storey building incorporates water efficiency, energy optimization and daylighting. The functional 26, 000 square meter space includes new classrooms, laboratories and specialized learning centres as well as administrative areas, food services facilities, a bookstore, a multi-faith centre, and Aboriginal Centre and a roof garden. Bow Valley College's South Campus also won a 2014 Top Projects award from the Alberta Construction Magazine. Winning in the Institutional - Over $50 Million and Design categories, the $126-million project was delivered on-schedule and under budget in December 2012. See more about the award here.
