Centennial College A Block Expansion
Block A Expansion is an $85M, 160,000 sq. ft. six-storey mass timber and concrete building connected to the Block A Building on the Centennial College Progress Campus.
This beautiful new building will include programming space for the School of Engineering Technology, an Indigenous Commons area, administrative services and support areas.
The structure consists of one level of cast-in-place concrete topped with five levels of mass timber.
For the mass timber assembly, CLT (cross-laminated timber) panels with concrete topping will be supported by glulam beams, which in turn will be supported by glulam columns.
The lateral system will utilize a combination of concrete cores and glulam-braced frames.
The new building is targeting LEED Gold and Zero Carbon.
