Donadeo Innovation Centre for Engineering (DICE) Building

 

REGISTER

Abstract:

The Donadeo Innovation Centre for Engineering provides approximately 85,000 square feet of interdisciplinary office space. As the tallest structure on campus, the 14-storey steel building is a dominant feature on the U of A skyline. Built on a remarkable 16m wide sliver of land between the pre-existing Chemical and Materials Engineering building and Windsor Car Park, the facility frees up an area equivalent to the office space of the four existing campus buildings, and supports expanded educational and research activities for the Faculty of Engineering at a fraction of the cost. The building is also one of the greenest on campus achieving a LEED Gold Certification.

This presentation will walk through the architectural and structural designs of the building as well as many of the innovations realized throughout the design and construction of the building.
