Grande Prairie Regional College, Phase II Addition

Year: 1990
Location: Grande Prairie, Alberta

Phase II expansion developed 270,000 ft² of new space to the existing College as well as renovations and modernizations to the original building designed by Douglas Cardinal. The sinuous design and expansive brickwork of the College has long been a Grande Prairie landmark so careful attention was made to blend the new design into Cardinals original conception.

A new gymnasium, cafeteria, courtyard and student lounge were major features of the expansion along with new laboratories, classrooms and shop areas. The campus was designed with a central core of service areas to encourage interaction and foster a diverse learning environment.

Many innovative methods of heating/cooling and modernizing the existing facility were utilized on this project including upgrading the existing building envelope to reduce energy consumption. A saline solution heat sink system utilizes off-peak utility hours to store energy resulting in significant utility savings.
