Concordia University has awarded TEQ a new contract for the expansion of the Science Pavilion (Part 1) and the Infrastructure Modernization (Part 2) at the Loyola Campus.
Part 1 is an expansion of a gross area of 8,400 square meters of the Science Building to establish an Applied Science Incubator. Areas of research include chemical engineering and materials, biotransformation, nanoscience and aquatic research. Part 1 has been designed and will be built to achieve Gold LEED certification. The work includes the construction of a 5-storey building with 2 basement levels connected to the Science Pavilion by a covered footbridge to the 3rd floor. level. The main functions that will be integrated into the Project are:
SS2: Bio transformation and aquatic laboratories;
SS1: Mechanical and electrical rooms;
Level 1: District 3: open collaborative design spaces, wet lab spaces, main entrance, amphitheater and loading dock;
Level 2: Chemical Engineering and Materials: wet and dry labs, benches and open spaces, work areas and research offices, shared facilities for collaborative research and training in materials engineering and nanoscience;
Level 3: A covered footbridge will connect the new expansion to the SP Pavilion;
Levels 3 and 4: Center for Nanoscience Research (CeNSR): separate wet organic and inorganic synthesis laboratory facilities and hardware characterization facility, nanomaterial scaling facility to support commercial innovation;
Level 5: Technical Floor.
Part 2 includes several works to modernize the infrastructure of 4 existing pavilions: replacement of steam boilers by hot water boilers, replacement of the steam unit heaters with electric fan heaters, replacement of a generator and so on. All of these interventions aim at improving campus energy efficiency.
