La Cité college implemented part of its agri-food research and educational program at its Main Campus on Aviation Parkway in Ottawa. This program aims to support research and training of vegetable growth like tomatoes and cucumbers. The project was developed with an integrated design approach where all stakeholders (La Cité project managers, program directors and teachers and consultants) were actively participating during design meeting. Right from the beginning, a schedule of design meeting was approved allowing our team to set the production pace and meet client’s expectation on a tight schedule. Working in an integrated design process allowed the project architects to assess requirements, confirm layout options, review technical and technological parameters of the growth equipment ensuring the project met client’s needs and budget.
