We were on the Planning, Design and Compliance (PDC) team to ensure commissioning compliance by the proponents and the Project Co for this IO project. This 200,000 sq.ft building was the largest single building in King City. This multi-disciplinary academic building welcomes 1,450 new students to the campus. It has approximately 25 classrooms, computer labs and specialty labs for training health-care practitioners, a library, learning commons and student study space. It also houses a new student area with a multi-purpose athletic and recreation room, gymnasium, fitness centre, informal study areas and event spaces. This project was targeting LEED Gold certification, with a budget of $70.9M.
Additionally, Seneca retained us as the Owner’s Commissioning Representative to go beyond the PDC’s scope. This was assigned to our firm due to the success of our previous campus expansion project with the College at the Newnham Campus. Our hands-on approach to commissioning and our attention to detail were appreciated. Our new role as a technical advisor for Seneca is to follow the commissioning process closely with site visits and construction meetings and to provide technical assistance and solutions to the team. We understand this particular role and look out for the interest of the College.
