UBC Engineering Student Centre

UAA was highly effective in working with the project stakeholders resulting in a facility that really met their needs. They were very resourceful throughout the design process resulting in highly useful and sustainability facility design within a tight project budget. Lastly, Shelley and Jennifer are a pleasure to work with.

The Engineering Student Centre will be a home away from home for the students, providing open and accessible gathering and study space. The design for the ESC is founded on the new paradigm for the Engineering Undergraduate Society - an open and inclusive approach that is engaged in local and global initiatives while embracing the multi-disciplinary and sustainable approach to Engineering.

The vision for the facility has been achieved in collaboration with the students, and is rooted in Engineering culture and tradition while looking to the future.
