EDUCATION

An effective school facility is responsive to the changing programs of educational delivery, and at a minimum should provide a physical environment that is comfortable, safe, secure, accessible, well illuminated, well ventilated, and aesthetically pleasing.  The school facility consists of not only the physical structure and the variety of building systems, such as mechanical, plumbing, electrical and power, telecommunications, security, and fire suppression systems.  The facility also includes furnishings, materials and supplies, equipment and information technology, as well as various aspects of the building grounds, namely, athletic fields, playgrounds, areas for outdoor learning, and vehicular access and parking.

The educational facility is much more than a passive container of the educational process: it is, rather, an integral component of the conditions of learning.  The layout and design of a facility contributes to the experience of students, educators, and community members.

Description

The 80,000 sq.ft. facility combined a new learning centre and an engineering lab that positioned Queen’s as a leader in engineering education worldwide.  Its facilities are leading edge with a non-conventional studio and team-based environment that covers the many facets of engineering practice, including simulation, design, manufacture and presentation.

Leading Edge Facility

The University’s Faculty of Applied Science has combined this facility and a fundamentally restructured curriculum to position Queen’s as a worldwide leader in engineering education.  Located in Kingston, Beamish-Munro Hall is the home of the Integrated Learning Centre - a leading-edge facility with a nonconventional studio and team-based environment.  Active Learning Resources and Project Areas are only two examples of the many types of facilities featured.  As a “Live Building,” sensors throughout allow students to study, monitor and manipulate data generated from the building systems.

Live Building Features

Project Completion Date

Type of Contract

Lump Sum

Project Value

$19,500,000

Description

The challenge of this project was to integrate a 21st-century business school with a 19th-century, Victorian, red-brick elementary school in the context of a stone campus.  The solution successfully interweaves the old and the new through the use of a brick colonnade with the new stone-and-zinc facade of the addition.  Budget concerns were alleviated by using excess cooling capacity from an adjacent building and by developing a highly efficient floorplate.  The former elementary school was renovated to provide new teaching and administrative space while restoring significant interior hallways and rooms to their former grandeur.  The new, three-storey addition more than doubles the gross floor area of the heritage building (from 42,561 to 111,989 square feet).  The addition was designed to act as a link between the red brick of the old school and the ever-present limestone of the Queen’s campus.

The project won an Award of Excellence from the Ontario Association of Architects and an Award of Commendation from the Frontenac Historical Foundation in 2003.

“… the final product is one in which we can all take great pride.  Bondfield has shown a refreshing cooperative spirit throughout the project.  We understood that the project would be a challenge from the outset; with heritage fabric, existing conditions, complex building and IT systems, etc. but site cooperation was excellent and a key to successful completion of the work.  Based upon this experience we would be pleased to recommend Bondfield Construction Company for future projects.”
