New SFU Surrey building receives award for architectural excellence

September 06, 2018

SFU’s new home to the Sustainable Energy Engineering (SEE) program, slated to start in Fall 2019, is attracting attention with its striking façade design. The firm that designed the building, Revery Architecture Inc., is being honoured with the Canadian Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute’s 2018 CPCI Roy Willwerth Architectural Recognition award for its skill and creativity in designing the exterior face of the building — designed to represent the ‘circuit board’ imagery relating to the technological subject matter that will be taught within its walls.

Once complete, the five-story building — which is a LEED® Certification Candidate — will be home to 320 undergraduates and 120 graduate students of the SEE program, itself a first of its kind in Western Canada. Other programs, including from the Schools of Computing Science and Mechatronic Systems Engineering, as well as SFU’s entrepreneurship initiatives will also benefit from access to the building. The new state-of-the-art facility is located adjacent to SFU’s existing Surrey campus.
