Sawchuk: Since 1981 building excellence


  This 1992 project for the new OUC North Campus (now the UBC Campus) consisted of a 53,000 square foot building. The structure is a combination of steel and cast-in-place concrete.

The exterior included extensive use of brick and aluminum curtain wall with tinted glass. The roofing is an inverted membrane roof system.

Interior finishes included multi-spec (Zolotone) paint on walls, rift cut oak doors, carpets and inlaid Marmoleum flooring with factory cove bases.

The building also included a large commercial kitchen and cafeteria. A striking feature of this building is the central lounge with high ceilings and glass gables.

This building is the central structure for the UBC campus and a significant architectural landmark in Kelowna.
