The Roderick Mah Centre for Continuous Learning project is a three-story expansion to an existing building on the Mount Royal University campus. The space consists of classrooms, offices, meeting rooms, one floor dedicated to massage therapy education, and one partially-below-grade level for storage. Substantial completion was proudly achieved on schedule.
The building was designed to match the existing facility. Exterior finishes are a combination of a composite cladding material, brick, curtain wall, and punched windows. The centrally located atrium exquisitely defines the architectural elements and is designed to achieve LEED Gold accreditation. Preconstruction planning, value management, and constructability services in advance of design completion led to a design maximized for student benefit. Building Information Modeling (BIM) was used for clash detection and efficiency gains in mechanical, electrical, and other building systems.
