SFU Surrey Library and Tech Desk

Location: Vancouver BC

Area: 1,184 ft2 (110 m2)

Status: Completed 2018 under previous firm Studio B Architects

The existing SFU Surrey Campus Library renovations involved a reconfiguration of the existing library and the construction of a new IT Service Desk. Through extensive programming and stakeholder meetings, the library layout was optimized to address current user needs, remaining adaptable for future growth. The new IT Service Desk provides an accessible, prominent location for library users and meets the security needs of the staff.

The project works were staged to allow uninterrupted use of the Library and the majority of construction was completed during a single week’s semester break.

The expertise and cooperative effort from the client group, contractor and consultant team resulted in the successful delivery of the project within a challenging site and schedule.
