SFU Surrey expansion heading to Council

UrbanSurrey reported in June that SFU Surrey is moving forward with expansion plans for their City Centre campus which will include a new 5-storey Sustainable Energy and Environmental Engineering Building at 102 ave and University Drive. Since then, the project has been moving behind the scenes, and is scheduled to be presented to Council for Rezoning and General Development Permit at tonight’s July 11, 2016 council meeting

Design of the building is currently underway by Bing Thom Architects, the same architecture firm who designed Central City and the City Centre Library. At this stage, preliminary renderings have been released which show a main entrance at the corner of 102 Ave and University Dr, with a secondary entrance and grand atrium with staircase fronting onto University Dr. This staircase will provide views into the building from the street, and lead to the building’s main lecture hall. Detailed design of the building will be submitted as part of a detailed Development Permit application after the Rezoning By-law has received Third Reading or possibly Final Adoption. The building will be targeting the LEED Gold standard
