Project Description

The LEED® Silver Certified Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Science is a prominent feature on the University Quad and houses the Faculty of Science program. This 52,000 m2 project includes a variety of teaching and research facilities. Wet and physics dry laboratories as well as laboratories for specialized research programs such as fluid dynamic and radiation laboratories are accommodated in the facility.

The mechanical systems was designed to serve 250 low flow, variable volume fume hoods with manifold fume exhaust systems, complete with energy recovery. Additional energy saving design features included radiant cooling, an energy efficient process load cooling system that recycles chilled water, a dedicated instrument cooling water system, and a combination of glycol run-around and enthalpy wheels to maximize energy recovery and meet LEED® energy saving goals.

In addition to the laboratories, this building features lecture theatres, offices and atriums. The project was Construction Managed with a fast-tracked schedule that included multiple tender packages, with the pre-tender of 750,000 CFM of air handling equipment, and mechanical interface with the existing Biological Sciences Building.
