Using a design-build project delivery model, Eastern Construction in conjunction with Montgomery Sisam Architects and Architecture Counsel, will construct the newest addition to the Durham College campus, the Centre for Collaborative Education. The CFCE represents a new direction for the campus, changing the way the College community and public relate and engage with the campus. The mixed-use facility highlights the multi-dimensional nature of the College. Components such as the Spa Suite and Patient-Care Laboratories will be aimed at furthering patient-centered, inter-professional health-care. Accelerator spaces will create a hive-like atmosphere geared towards furthering invention, engaging industry, and market innovations. The Centre for Success will nurture future post-secondary students. The Aboriginal Centre and Diversity Services components will offer purpose-designed spaces that accommodate cultural practices in an inclusive environment. All these components will be complemented by the Global Classroom, shared teaching and maker spaces and, importantly, food and social areas.
