Anne-Marie Edward Science Building

EBC built the 11,555 m² Health and Science Building, Anne-Marie Edwards, at John Abbott College. The building has 6 floors above ground and one underground. The foundations rest on a concrete base and some areas have rock anchors. The pavilion includes classrooms, teaching laboratories with chemical fume hoods (physics, biology and chemistry), offices and student services spaces, including a massive 800 m² agora.

  • The building envelope is exclusively composed of curtain walls. This architectural design is particularly innovative and knows no precedent in Québec, as well as in Canada.
  • Teaching and learning activities were maintained throughout the work.
  • An underground mechanical tunnel connecting the new pavilion to the other campus buildings was attached to maintain all services operational.
