University of British Columbia Okanagan - Engineering, Management and Education Building
In association with MQN Architects
The Engineering, Management and Education (EME) building contains both the Faculty of Applied Sciences (Engineering) and the Faculty of Management. The two buildings are connected by a central atrium and organized around shared amenities, including common areas, classrooms, lecture theatres and a collegium. Within each faculty area there are customized faculty and administration offices, a variety of teaching and research labs as well as library facilities. The modularized building form is designed to easily adapt to future expansion.
The west side of the Engineering and Management building contains three stories of laboratories. Engineering lab spaces contain skylights for natural day lighting and reduce the overall load on artificial lighting. The use of natural ventilation and day lighting has been employed throughout, with as many labs, offices and classrooms as possible having both operable and vision windows.
