Student Learning Centre

Transforming the corner of Yonge and Gould streets into one of Toronto’s most vibrant, people-friendly intersections, the Student Learning Centre (SLC) will give the Ryerson community an outstanding environment in which to study, collaborate and share ideas. The SLC was designed through a partnership between two renowned architectural firms: Snøhetta & Zeidler Partnership Architects. It has been targeted to achieve LEED Silver certification. A short video explains the SLC’s main design features.

What’s Happening

Work on the structural concrete frame is continuing. We have now completed the Level 7 slab systems and are working hard on advancing the Level 8 slab system completion.  The image below, is a representation of the planned structural progress over the next month. The Level 9 slab is our main roof level, so we are getting close to topping off the structure. All that will remain is the structural steel framing system for the mechanical penthouse that rises above the main roof.

Interior work continues to progress well as the team starts to install various masonry separating walls and continues with installation of the mechanical and electrical systems components

One apparent change has been the installation of the glass system cladding to the bridge link over O’Keefe Lane.

The Contractor will continue with removal of the temporary shoring and re-shoring supports in the lower levels, as the structural concrete frame cures to its intended design strength. This allows the construction team to carry on with installation of the curtainwall cladding systems. Conditions over the last few months have constrained installation activities; however, over the next few months, the exterior skin on the building will become very evident. The planned progress is reflected in the pictorial representation shown below. Look for a big visual change in the building over the next few months!
