Project Summary

SFU Residences Phase One is a 7 and 8 story student dormitory project at SFU’s Burnaby Mountain campus.  The buildings included:

  • 485 Student rooms
  • Two Caretaker apartments
  • Multi-story student lounges & study rooms
  • Games room amenity area
  • Multi-Purpose amenity area

The unique shape and structural design of this project brought its fair number of challenges.  Each system required multiple wiring methods to traverse these towers.  From in slab, and surface conduit, feeder cabling and underground raceways, our crews tackled each challenge with enthusiasm and professionalism.
