Seneca College Centre for Innovation Technology and Entrepreneurship (CITE)
RJC provided structural engineering consulting for this $87M, 244,082 sq. ft., five-storey innovation and entrepreneurship building at the Newnham campus.
The project was fast-tracked and sequential tendering was used with structural tender documents being issued only one and a half months after the project was awarded.
The building provides an expansion to the Mechanical Engineering program and Mechatronics program.
The program space includes 3D prototyping, a robotics lab, a computer numerical control (CNC) showcase, a machine shop, maker space, classrooms, and an innovation gallery.
The gallery has a six-storey high atrium with cranked steel stairs and plated steel columns to support the curtain wall, terracotta and exterior screens.
