Institutional


BUILDING COMMUNITY SPIRIT.

WE ARE PROUD TO WORK ON BUILDINGS THAT SERVE COMMUNITY – SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES, COMMUNITY CENTRES, GOVERNMENT OFFICES, POLICE STATIONS, FIRE HALLS AND COURTHOUSES.

On government-funded projects, buildings serve to educate, inspire and protect while still needing to be functional and economical.  These multiple objectives guide our work on institutional projects. We develop creative structural and building envelope solutions that realize the architect’s vision in ways that are high-performing, highly constructible and cost-efficient.

Sustainability plays a large role in the development of public buildings. We work closely with architects, design professionals and subcontractors to meet sustainability objectives. From utilizing radiant concrete ceilings to maximizing available daylight and transparency to optimize the use of materials , Entuitive has contributed to achieving LEED® certification for numerous institutional buildings, including LEED Platinum certification.

There are several specialized ways we have contributed to the success of institutional projects.  Our work has integrated existing heritage structures in building expansions, developed unique structural designs for showcase stairs and developed design management systems to control costs.
