This project involved additional construction to the existing 117,000 square foot School of Hospitality and Tourism at George Brown College. Construction consisted of a 12,500 square foot addition, a 3,300 square foot mechanical penthouse, a 2,500 square foot partial infill to 3 floors and renovations to various locations within the building.

This included kitchen teaching labs, classrooms, a board room, administrative and student services offices and washrooms. The project was constructed in close coordination with the College to ensure that all classes and college events were maintained throughout the entire course of the project.

A complete hoarding and safety plan was implemented to ensure that the public was properly and safely separated from the construction activities while minimizing impact on the college activities that continued in and around the construction activities. Construction of the building addition was confined to a small street side courtyard that was completely replaced by the footprint of the new addition.
