The natural features of the building, a 3 storey living bio-wall (first of its kind in Atlantic Canada) and massive continual skylight, create a relaxing atmosphere for the students and faculty. The structure boasts a curvilinear steel stair which created a unique fabricating challenge that was no problem for Marid. It also displays the raw uniqueness steel can bring to a structure.
This project met LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design)standards. In 2011 the project received a CISC award for the Atlantic region and Marid is pleased to be associated with the project.
