omb is currently undertaking a renewal project at the SFU Education Building which includes a complete envelope renewal as well as extensive interior renovations for the Faculty of Education.

The new building envelope is a modern rain screen assembly over significantly improved insulation, and has been designed to be integrated with other recent roof and below grade renewal work. The enclosure design also features large skylights and high-performance curtain wall glazing. The renewal also improves the functional and programmatic performance of the Education Faculty spaces and provides an updated, revitalized building exterior and landscape. Additionally, we are also re-designing the building’s signage + wayfinding system, integrating it with the interiors and significantly improving the user experience. Most of the building must remain operational during construction. We’ve worked with the team to develop a phased construction plan and work strategy which minimizes disruption to classes, staff, and faculty.
