St. Joseph’s Health Centre in association with the University of Toronto continues to be a leading teaching hospital that assists in developing the future’s physicians and health care providers. To this end, St. Joseph’s Health Centre has undergone a 3,800sf renovation to create a new Learning Centre that will further improve the inter-professional, collaborative learning environment for thousands of students that train at the hospital annually.
This renovated space includes two multi-function auditoriums and learning centre that serves as the primary space for inter-professional education for larger and small groups in the hospital. The extent of the work involved selective demolition architectural features as well as mechanical and electrical systems within the space. Scope of the new work involved the creation of two auditoriums that are divided by an operable partition that allows for these two spaces to be combined for larger groups. In addition, there is another smaller learning space, a meeting room and a quiet study area. The programming for this project included modifications to the mechanical systems, new updated lighting and audio visual systems.
