The new EITC Complex at the University of Manitoba involved the redevelopment of the original engineering complex, in addition to welcoming the University’s Department of Computer Science.
The project involved the deconstruction of the 1947 building and the construction of a new six storey concrete structure with a full basement. A six storey open atrium connects the new building to the original 1913 engineering building, as well as the 1966 facility. The atrium roof structure features three dimensional 20 metre long steel trusses with a southern clerestory window band.
The redevelopment also involves extensive renovations and additions to the 1913 building as well as renovations in the 1966 building.
A tunnel links the new facility to the main underground circulation system of the campus.
This project was designed using sustainable design principles and was LEED® Silver targeted. Crosier Kilgour & Partners was presented with a Consulting Engineers of Manitoba Award of Merit for our building engineering design and services for this project.
