Emily Carr University—Great Northern Way Campus

Projects / Institutional

Project info

Founded in 1925, Emily Carr is the only specialized post-secondary institution in BC offering exclusive programs in fine arts, media arts, and design. Having long outgrown its current Granville Island Campus, the new 286,000 square foot campus is located at Great Northern Way and East 1st Avenue in Vancouver. 

The new building, designed to LEED® Gold standards, was delivered as a Public Private Partnership (P3) through Partnerships BC.

As a design-assist partner, we delivered electrical and technology solutions, which included lighting and adaptable lighting controls, power distribution, backup power, fire alarm, security and life safety, and communications systems.
