VCC Downtown 1st Floor Renovation

LOCATION: Vancouver, BC
YEAR: 2018
VALUE: $700,000



For VCC Facilities Management, in early Spring, 2018, CAGP was selected through a RFP process to develop the design for 423sm (4,560sf) of existing, occupied space in VCC’s Downtown Campus main floor to accommodate two key administrative groups – Student Services (SS) and International Education (IE). Both functions require immediate student and public access with a range of offices, meeting rooms and staff facilities. SS’s functional needs requires specialized single and group ‘Exam Rooms’ for quiet activity in the midst of the busy office environment. The IE space has the advantage of exterior windows and is designed to visually integrate with an adjacent, IE admin. office. The SS space is configured within an existing ‘open office’ with limited but effective south windows so the new design aesthetic relies on extensive glazed partitions with special acoustic separations for exam rooms to maintain an open, light-filled  atmosphere.
