The SFU Sustainable Energy and Environmental Engineering (SE3P) Building is the first major step in the expansion of the SFU Surrey Campus beyond their Central City campus in what is envisioned as an integrated academic precinct within the City Centre. The SE3P program will be the first dedicated undergraduate energy engineering program in Western Canada, housed within a 173,000 square foot five-storey building which consists of one level of underground parking and a mechanical penthouse. The building program consists of classrooms, teaching/research labs, administrative offices, study spaces and recreational rooms. A 400-seat lecture hall situated at the main entrance will service the full SFU Surrey campus as well as the broader Surrey community.
The building interior is organized around a central grand atrium space which is populated with trees at varying levels to introduce nature into the building and promote student gathering/study spaces. The atrium also features a wave-like clerestory structure that diffuses and softens incoming sunlight. The building façade is composed of undulating framed precast concrete and reflective glass, abstractly derived from the circuit board imagery relating to the technological subject matter that will be taught within the building.
Since the ground-breaking of fall 2016, the SFU SE3P is currently under construction with the majority of the building envelope complete with ongoing interiors work, anticipated occupancy will be in early 2019. The SE3P is targeted to be LEED Gold Standard.
NOTE: THE BUILDING IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
