Adding over 1,000 square metres of student space and 35 new laboratories and classrooms, Langara College’s new Science and Technology building targets a Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Gold designation by using highly-efficient building systems and fully integrating healthy living components. LEED design features include energy efficient building envelope; low-flow fume hoods with adjustable sashes; and, energy-efficient mechanical and electrical systems.
Opened last fall, the building is the new home for several programs including Computer Science, Biology, Physics, Internet and Web Technology, Nursing, and more. On the west side, a dramatic 16-metre cantilevered portion incorporates a skylight window that allows natural daylight to penetrate through to the ground below.
“This new facility provides new spaces and opportunities to enhance our students’ learning. Our entire community is so excited about this beautiful signature addition to our campus,” said Dr. Lane Trotter, President, Langara College.
“The new Science and Technology Building at Langara College will prepare students for a range of in-demand health care, life sciences and tech-related careers,” said Advanced Education Minister Andrew Wilkinson. “Public post-secondary institutions are providing students with high-quality education and training opportunities in new buildings on campuses throughout our province.”
