Project: Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. Johns, NL
What if you could reposition your University as a global science and engineering leader?
The Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) campus is at a turning point in its 91-year history. Many of its buildings are showing their age, and the lack of modern facilities is beginning to impact the school’s ability to compete for top-tier faculty and students – but not for long. Thanks to significant funding from the provincial government, MUN is investing in the design and development of a new $250 million state-of-the-art research, teaching, and laboratory building to house both the Faculty of Science and Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences on their St. Johns campus.
We have been involved with the project since the beginning – providing project management services throughout the high-profile pre-construction phase. The 440,000 SF Core Science Facility (CSF) is one of the largest capital projects ever completed in Newfoundland and is testing the limits of the local industry under the watchful eye of the general public. The attention makes our role that much more critical – from overseeing, managing, and coordinating the numerous contractors, to facilitating the permit and approvals process, and ensuring the project stays on budget and on schedule. With research and teaching laboratories, offices, meeting and public spaces, and 125,000 SF of shelled space within its iceberg-inspired design, the CSF is on track to set a new standard of excellence for facilities on campus and establish Memorial University of Newfoundland as a leader in the global science and engineering community.
