Simon Fraser University opened the CAD$126 million Sustainable Energy Engineering building in April of 2019 in Surrey, British Columbia. Designed by Revery Architecture with Research Facilities Design (RFD) as laboratory design consultant, the 220,200-sf facility will accommodate programs in renewable energy, sustainable manufacturing, mechatronics, and clean power generation. Offering wet and dry teaching labs, the project features a five-story atrium with a collaborative staircase connecting the two sides of the building, with one half providing research space and the other housing classrooms, offices, and a 400-seat lecture hall. LEED Gold sustainable design certification will be sought for the facility, which was constructed using 330 precast concrete architectural components supplied by Surespan Structures. Bird Construction broke ground on the fast-track project in September of 2016.
