The SFU Education Building project involved 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 improves the functional and programmatic performance of the Education Faculty spaces and provides an updated, revitalized building exterior and landscape. omb’s scope also included redesigning the building’s signage + wayfinding system, integrating it with the interiors, and significantly improving the user experience. Most of the building remained operational during construction—we worked with the team to develop a phased construction plan and work strategy that minimized disruption to classes, staff, and faculty.
