Education on the Fast Track

Posted on December 22, 2017

In 2016, Sheridan College invested $47.5 million to construct a new, state-of-the-art learning facility dedicated to skilled trades at its Davis Campus in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.

The facility’s district energy center, which provides the heating and cooling network for the entire campus, is truly a piece of art.  Designed with a glass enclosure, students are able to view the impressive system up close and personal as it delivers comfortable temperatures throughout the school. But this show piece didn’t come together without some challenges.

Insight Engineering & Construction, the project contractor, was tasked with designing and installing four separate heating systems in the three-story, 130,000-square foot building by November 2016. Facing a fast track schedule, and with space limitations due to the glass enclosed design, Insight needed to ensure a way to boost productivity and save time in the field so students could occupy the new wing in time for the upcoming semester and ahead of frigid winter temperatures. The answer was to find a true project partner. And they did, in Victaulic.

“It made sense to go with Victaulic. We were already using their couplings and fittings, but their CPS (Construction Piping Services) solutions helped facilitate the tight timeline and intricate layout of the facility.”  – Adam Roznicki, Piping Supervisor at Insight Engineering & Construction

“We had an extremely tight timeline (less than four months) to get heating to the building, and a very small mechanical room to fit everything in. Having Victaulic provide a 3D model helped the project team visualize and work out interferences in advance of prefab, which assisted us in achieving our deadline.” – David Ng., Vice President at The Aquila Group
