The St. Jerome’s University Campus Renewal project was the first post-secondary education facility project in Canada to use the Level 3 IPD model of project delivery.

The $47M redevelopment more than doubled the campus's square footage.The project included the design and construction of a new 360-bed student residence, a new academic center with offices, classrooms and research space, and an expansion of the food services area.In addition, the north section of Sweeney Hall was removed and the Notre Dame Chapel made into a stand-alone structure.

The remaining Sweeney Hall rooms were repurposed as offices and the Fireplace Lounge and Sr.

Leon White Room is now utilized as off-campus student space.

The combination of additional residence facilities and a new academic building provides physical support for an improved academic and student experience.The IPD team’s goal of minimizing waste during the project delivery was supported through the application of LEAN methods that optimized construction efficiencies.BIM Technology was used to determine the interaction and location of building operating systems to streamline the layout.

RJC applied years of best practices to develop a streamlined and efficient process to deliver the project in REVIT to LOD400.
