Architectural design by Cannon Design
The new building 'E' comprises of large and medium sized lecture halls, high-tech classrooms for a variety of technical programs, meetings rooms, and offices. The main level is used for student association services, food court, and restaurant. The basement is designed as a shell space for future expansion.
The mechanical design solution involves using a variety of mechanical systems, including enthalpy wheel heat recovery units, air cooled chiller, and high efficiency forced draft boilers all located on the roof of the building. An integrated smoke control system (fire alarm - BAS integration)is employed to allow openness of all levels to the atrium - an architectural key feature at the facility. Snow melt systems are also used to ensure safety on the immense stairs leading up to the main entrance from Kendal Avenue on the east to the new 'E' building and to the existing 'C' building of the campus. Space heating system incorporates cast alloy radiators which are less susceptible to vandalism and require little maintenance. The installation was carefully coordinated to completely hide the heating feeds to the radiator units.
