Simon Fraser University Saywell Hall & Blusson Hall

Congruent in design with the rest of campus, Saywell Hall and Blusson Hall are an exposed concrete structure highlighted by an architectural precast fa├žade that incorporates glulam wood and exterior glass veneer.

Housed within both buildings are classrooms, collaborative space, research and teaching labs. Together, the two buildings form a large landscaped courtyard with reflecting pool, a central focus for the complex. Lighting controls and mechanical systems create a 30% reduction in energy consumption. There is an extensive waste management system, green roof technology and underground cisterns store water for irrigation.
