Learning Innovation

Challenge
To create a flexible space that could be adapted to meet the ever-changing needs of technology programs – in terms of enrolment numbers, industry needs, and emerging technologies – and to provide structural elements complementing the architectural features.
Solution
Entuitive’s engineers chose structural systems that achieve open concept spaces through economy of material. Of note is the two-storey hub of classrooms and offices, which employs the first-known use of spherical-voided slab – or “bubbledeck” – in Alberta. It allows for floor spans greater than 13 metres long with minimal slab depth, in comparison to conventional cast-in-place concrete or steel systems. Finally, the desired wave-form roof was achieved using glued laminated timber – glulam – a low-cost and sustainable wood product suitable for curvilinear forms.
