Productivity and Innovation Centre

Edmonton, Alberta

Project Description

The Productivity and Innovation Centre (PIC) at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) is a cutting-edge facility designed to enhance productivity, encourage innovation, and support applied research. The purpose-built space is equipped with state-of-the-art labs and spaces that cater to the needs of students, faculty, and industry professionals alike.

The building orientation set on a triangular site established unique spaces within the facility, creating wings that allow for flexible spaces. Between the wings there is an atrium that functions as a gathering spot for collaboration and connection. The PIC was designed to be flexible enough to adapt to the ever-changing needs of industries, including technology, health, and engineering. The centre also includes spaces for acceleration support and productivity enhancement, aiding students, and industry professionals to enhance and develop their skills and knowledge.

One of the most exciting features of the construction of PIC was the focus on sustainability. The team partnered to use LED lighting on the construction site, which resulted in significant savings on power demand and costs. Ten months into construction, enough savings had been made to power approximately 15 homes for 1 year, and carbon dioxide emissions had been drastically cut. The inclusion of LED lighting also contributed to the LEED Gold certification achieved.

Clark Builders completed the PIC to the highest standards of quality and sustainability, ensuring the facility remains an Alberta landmark for years to come.
