The new 80,000 sq. ft. Centre for Trades Education and Innovation at Camosun College will provide students on Vancouver Island with more opportunities to train for in-demand careers. The Centre at the Interurban Campus of Camosun College includes new facilities for a marine and metal trades training program that includes welding, sheet metal, metal fabrication, nautical and ship building and repair programs. Spanning 140’ over the main entrance atrium, a glulam truss resembles the form of a ship’s hull. The $30M facility met BC’s Wood First policy by the incorporation of nail laminated timber (NLT) and exposed glulam framing in the classrooms and teaching spaces. Throughout the design, students are exposed to various visual elements showcasing examples of the trades being taught in the space.
