Residence design & construction

The University of Toronto awarded us the design-build contract for its new student residence, which will become one of the most energy-efficient buildings in Canada.

  • Three to four temporary rooms
  • Two suites for visiting scholars
  • Common areas for learning workshops
  • Administrative offices
  • A dining room
