Facilities Management Service Building

Project completion 

The new Facilities Management service building was completed in fall 2018. The removal of the older greenhouse structures was completed in August 2016 with their purchase, deconstruction and relocation for use on Salt Spring Island.

Project information 

Jenson Chernoff Thompson Architects were retained by the university to develop the plans for the new structure and preliminary work on the design drawings in consultation with FMGT. The new service building, approximately 533 m2 in size is located north of Saunders building. The building houses a vehicle repair shop, a fabrication and welding shop as well as grounds maintenance support space. These units were previously located in the two main FMGT shop buildings. Relocating these units out of these buildings will allow for the internal expansion of the existing trade shops. The remaining space will accommodate the relocation of the shop storage space currently located in Q Hut.

In September 2019, the project achieved a Gold Rating in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the Canada Green Building Council.

A program of requirements, which outlines the building spaces, uses and services, has been completed. The CPC reports, which address the siting, program and design for the project, are available here:

The Community Engagement Framework report provides for a consistent methodology to be used to determine the overall approach to an engagement program for campus land use planning and development projects. An engagement approach, primarily in the inform category was selected for this project, based on its location, the nature of the project relative to the criteria listed and a review of the likely impacts.
