Okanagan College Centre of Excellence, Penticton BC

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

The Centre of Excellence was designed and built as an innovative, sustainable post-secondary facility highly adapted to its site, climate and context. Opening in the fall of 2011, the facility will support a program mix that has a focus on sustainable building technologies and processes, as well as research and development of alternative and renewable sources of energy. The innovative features of the building itself will be used as a teaching tool to help train the next generation of trades people in green construction practices.
