The Student Athletic Centre project at Niagara College consisted of a new 2-storey building to house a 72,000 square foot facility and a 14,400 square foot learning commons courtyard as well as associated support spaces. The new facilities were constructed in close coordination with the campus staff in order to ensure that college activities were not interrupted. This project was completed according to schedule and all proper commissioning and closeout documentation was provided in compliance to the specifications. Effective communication and project management was maintained throughout the project construction with all appropriate parties.

“Aquicon took on complex projects with high standards, under tough constraints in both time and space. This project was completed in a timely, professional and thoroughly cooperative fashion.”

John Gittings, Director, Facilities Management Services, Niagara College

In constructing the Learning Commons area, the existing courtyard was enclosed with an open-concept roof structure consisting of a structural steel framing and an aluminum curtain wall glazing with aluminum panels and masonry bricks. Interior finishes include wood, flooring, ceramics, floating drywall ceilings, wood paneling and exposed polished concrete.
