Architect offers tour of new campus building

The Vancouver Chapter of CSC is organizing a tour of the Simon Fraser University’s (SFU’s) Sustainable Energy and Environmental Engineering (SE3P) building in Surrey, British Columbia, on May 10 from 12 to 1:30 p.m. Arthur Tseng, AIBC, of Revery Architecture will be conducting the tour.

The SFU SE3P is currently under construction with the majority of the building envelope complete and ongoing interiors work. Occupancy is anticipated for early 2019. The SE3P project is targeting gold standards under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.

The building program consists of classrooms, teaching/research labs, administrative offices, study spaces and recreational rooms, and a 400-seat lecture hall. The interior is organized around a central grand atrium space populated with trees at varying levels to introduce nature into the building and promote student gathering/study spaces. The atrium also features a wave-like clerestory structure diffusing and softening incoming sunlight. The building façade is composed of undulating framed precast concrete and reflective glass.

Participants must bring their own safety glasses, steel-toed boots, hard hats, and safety vests. Dust mask is optional. Additionally, participants will be required to sign waiver sheets. They must enter the site office at Gate No.2.

Sign up soon as space is limited to the first 30 participants. To register, click here.
