University of Toronto's Centre for Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship Custom Site Hoarding



Street artist Jason Wing, aka SKAM, painted a massive 276-foot mural that spans the outer wall around the construction site of the Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CEIE) for the University of Toronto (UofT). The mural features abstract representation of the rich history of engineering derived from UofT. Video clip available here: https://youtu.be/pFReoghi0bM

As the general contractor for the project, Bird got a special space at the end of the mural, incorporating its site sign.

More about the project:

The Centre for Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CEIE) is a project within the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering at the University of Toronto (photo of rendering to the right). The building is an eight-storey (above grade) cast-in-place concrete structure with two levels underground (one level of parking and one level of student club space). An auditorium on the ground floor will serve as an interactive undergraduate classroom.

The six-storeys above ground will feature interactive and multi-functional teaching facilities, clusters of design studios that will serve to promote student teamwork and graduate-level administrative nerve centres. An atrium will run through the centre of the building from levels five to eight; allowing for open collaboration between all levels and specialities within the facility.

Located on a tight footprint on the St. George Campus, adjacent to Convocation Hall, safety is of utmost priority as the site is adjacent to a high traffic pedestrian walkway. Bird has installed a chain-link fence and double swinging gate to control access and site security.

The project is currently under construction and is on target for completion in 2017.
