Simon Fraser University (SFU) – SE3P Surrey, BC
SE3P project is a $116m five-storey, LEED Gold certified building comprised of classrooms, labs, team rooms, a 400-seat theatre, offices and support spaces. The building floor area is approximately 200,000 sqft. The new SE3P building is an expansion to SFU’s Surrey Campus. The building houses Applied Science Programs including Mechatronics labs, Systems Software and a new Sustainable Energy and Environmental Engineering Program. This new program consists of 320 undergraduate engineering students and 100 graduate students. Project has won Canadian Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute’s 2018 CPCI Roy Willwerth Architectural Recognition Award for the building design. Sanjay worked on this fast-track project funded by Federal & Provincial Governments from DP stage to total completion. The key was to get construction underway while the design was still under development with phased permitting and tendering process, allowing to achieve the super aggressive schedule.
