Centennial College is collaborating with EllisDon, DIALOG and Smoke Architecture to construct the first zero-carbon, mass timber higher-education building in the country, designed based on the concept of “two-eyed seeing.” Forming a new gateway structure at Centennial’s Progress Campus, the $105-million expansion to the Progress Campus A Block building will embody the College’s commitment to Truth and Reconciliation and sustainable design when it opens in 2023.

“We wanted to raise the bar for future post-secondary projects,” said Craig Stephenson, President and CEO, Centennial College. “At Centennial, we view sustainability, inclusivity and Indigeneity as wholly interconnected ideas and we wanted a building that demonstrates that crucial relationship.”

Notable features of the development will include:

  • Mass timber structure, providing carbon sequestration abilities.
  • The zero-carbon facility, no emissions will be produced from the operation of the building, including space-heating, ventilation, hot water, and lighting.
  • Flexible learning spaces, which will allow for the reorientation of physical elements to be conducive to indigenous models of teaching and learning.
  • Spaces for gathering with Traditionalists, Elders, citizens of Indigenous Nations, and members of indigenous communities, equipped with indoor and outdoor learning spaces, office space, and common areas.
  • The facility will provide spaces for smudging, which involves the burning of sacred herbs or resins.

This facility is on track to receive WELL, LEED, and Zero Carbon certifications
