Moriyama Teshima complete phase one of landmark college
This is a complex project which is of landmark significance to the Nova Scotia Community College. The location of this campus on a prominent waterfront site in the heart of Halifax is intended to radically revise the image of the College in the minds of the government, business and post-secondary stakeholder communities of Nova Scotia. Moriyama & Teshima led the Master Planning and design process in close coordination with Barrie & Langille Architects and William Nycum & Associates Limited, delivering an integrated package of services that successfully met the challenge of optimizing the impact of a fixed capital budget and achieving a complex matrix of client objectives.
The building is the first phase of the planned campus development. It contains program spaces for the Schools of Business, Health and Human Services, Applied Arts and New Media, computer labs, specialist labs and studio environments. Common services include a library and learning commons, food court, presentation centre, exhibition space, student services centre, and meeting and administrative support facilities.
