The construction of the Robbins Health Learning Centre was a transformative project that aimed to provide advanced health education facilities for the students of MacEwan University.
The project involved the construction of a new 5-storey building, featuring state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories, and simulation rooms. The facility also includes offices, study spaces, and a large atrium for social gatherings and events.
The new building achieved LEED NC Silver certification, utilizing environmentally friendly building practices and sustainable materials. With an aggressive schedule that aligned with the beginning of the new semester, our team turned to an untraditional and innovative approach. Rather than complete the concrete structure one floor at a time, we decided to build in three vertical components. In addition, the construction of the concrete structure overlapped with the building envelope so that finishing work could be done immediately after.
The Robbins Health Learning Centre has since become a flagship facility for MacEwan University, providing students with a world-class learning environment that prepares them for the challenges and opportunities of the modern healthcare industry.
