When planning this two-storey trades facility, Okanagan College asked designers to push the limits of green construction to inspire a new generation of learners towards sustainable innovation. The Jim Pattison Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Technologies and Renewable Energy Conservation was to achieve net-zero energy consumption within its lifespan and use only locally-sourced products for construction.
