Canadian Light Source Building Expansion

 

Size: ~6,000 ft2   Timeline: 12 weeks   Year: 2016

 

PROJECT SUMMARY

The Canadian Light Source (CLS), located at the University of Saskatchewan, is a world-class, state-of-the-art facility that is advancing Canadian science, enhancing the competitiveness of Canadian industry and contributing to the quality of life of people around the world. This research centre continues to grow, and in turn, had a requirement to increase space for staff and researchers. 

3twenty Modular responded to a public tender to design, build, and install a modular office building expansion to accommodate this growth. Because of our unique design, cost effective proposal, and ability to deliver in a short time frame, we were the successful proponent.


THE DETAILS

  • Built from four 22’ x 60’ steel framed modular structures, designed to fit within a specific land lease
  • Key priorities included spacious open office and lots of natural light to create an attractive work environment
  • Special attention to exterior design to ensure seamless integration with existing building
  • Corridor connecting to main building sits on top of a major utility corridor; in turn, the 70’ hallway needed to be self-supporting between the two ends and easily disconnected and removed in the event of a utility issue
