November 21, 2019 – Media Release
Sydney, NS – The successful bidders for the initial phases of the development work for the relocation of NSCC’s Marconi Campus have been announced.
NSCC has awarded the contracts for architectural design and engineering services to Barrie & Langille Architects Ltd. and Moriyama & Teshima Architects, along with Fathom Studio (formerly Ekistics Planning & Design) and other sub consultants.
The vision of the project is to create a campus with a dynamic learning environment that will attract students from across the province. It will have a modern design, open spaces and state-of-the-art technology and contribute to the revitalization of the downtown.
The new campus, to be built on the Sydney waterfront, is expected to open in September 2024. The facility will be designed and built in accordance with accessibility standards and guidelines following the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification Program and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards, one of the most widely used green building certification programs in the world.
NSCC is committed to building Nova Scotia's economy and quality of life through education and innovation, transforming Nova Scotia one learner at a time. NSCC offers more than 130 career-oriented programs throughout the province at our 14 campuses, including our online eCampus. Programs are offered through five academic schools – Access, Education and Language; Business and Creative Industries; Health and Human Services, Technology and Environment; Trades and Transportation – and reflect the labour market needs and opportunities in Nova Scotia. NSCC's primary goal: student success. An annual survey of College graduates shows that 88% are employed one year after graduation, most in their field of study, with 92% of those employed living and working in Nova Scotia.
