The $44 Million renovation and expansion of the Jackman Faculty of Law Building at the University of Toronto is the recipient of the Ontario General Contractor’s Association (OGCA) ‘Group 3 Commercial’ category of the Ontario Builder Awards.

Measuring 158,000 ft2, the project was comprised of the partial demolition and complete renovation of the three-storey Bora Laskin Law Library, connected seamlessly with the new four-storey Crescent Building, which maintains the previously-existing connections to the adjacent heritage building, Sir J. Flavelle House.   The building consists of a multicomponent envelope of curtain wall, aluminum cladding, and limestone on a structural steel frame with concrete slab on deck.  The building included a significant structural cantilever to account for the root system of an existing mature oak tree, in-floor heating to provide comfortable learning within the 200-seat Moot Court, high environmental standards, and several communal areas for collaborative learning which highlight the spectacular natural views on all sides of the building.

Key subtrades contributing to the successful delivery of the Jackman Law project include:

Pipe-All Plumbing & Heating (Mechanical)

Urban Electric (Electrical)

M&G Steel (Structural Steel)
