The two-storey, 35,000-square-foot office building houses many of Durham College’s Student Services, including:
- Career services
- Financial aid
- Awards office
- Office of the Vice Presidnet
- Presentation rooms and classrooms
This project is a prime example of our design’s team capabilities, bringing together an energy-efficient and architecturally appealing flourescent lighting system. The system features a state-of-the-art lighting control system that incorporates daylight harvesting and occupancy sensors, addressable fire alarm system and complete building communication solutions.
This building also required the coordination and tie-in of many services into an adjacent building. Birnie Electric provided a turnkey Design-Build solution as both the electrical engineer providing complete electrical design as well as the contractor executing the plan.
Overall: $15 million
Electrical: $1.9 million
Contribution to Success
Our experienced team of engineers, master electricians and accredited project managers worked seamlessly to achieve success. Our team also worked closely with the rest of the design build team, owners and their representatives to ensure that all specific requirements and needs were implemented through various construction phases. The project was completed on time and on budget.
