Centre for Applied Technology

Edmonton, Alberta

Project Description

The Centre for Applied Technology at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) in Edmonton is the largest apprenticeship trainer in Canada and was no longer adequate to accommodate the growing demand and student population. 

Despite pressure and eagerness to start construction, the building underwent significant redesign through an integrated design development process with a fast-track process that overlapped with construction works.

The Centre for Applied Technology is a cutting-edge facility that caters to science and technology, healthcare, and business programs. With a capacity of 1,700 students, it provides a visually stunning and technologically advanced environment that enhances the NAIT student experience. The facility boasts state-of-the-art classrooms, advanced simulation labs, office space, student services, and a 135-seat lecture theatre, all thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of its users. The second floor caters to the students providing lounge and study areas for socializing, as well as group and independent studying. The main floor of the facility housed with a stunning glass ceiling six stories above, connects an atrium that is conducive for events and gatherings. 

Due to a focus on sustainability the building resulted in a LEED® Gold certification that exceeds expectations, while providing a world-class learning environment.
