SAIT's vision for a new Campus Centre
"A cornerstone of campus life, dedicated to promoting health and supporting student learning, community and wellness on campus."
In August, SAIT launched a four-year redevelopment project to replace Campus Centre with a new building. LINK brings you an insider's look at what's happened so far — and what's next!
The north end of the SAIT / Alberta University of the Arts / Jubilee C-Train station remains open. Some 60% of people coming to campus enter from here, and work is ongoing to keep this route accessible despite construction.
Saitsa’s administrative offices are operating out of the Saitsa Resource Centre (MC107, Stan Grad Centre).
The Odyssey Café’s temporary home during construction is NN120 (Senator Burns Building).
Opened in February 1981, Campus Centre was at the end of its life cycle. But, thanks to SAIT's sustainable decommissioning strategy, materials are being assessed for salvage, resale, donation or recycling. The target: a landfill diversion rate above 85% by weight. All figures shown below are as of Sept. 30, 2022.
Building bricks are sent to a recycling facility for reuse; concrete and masonry are processed into base material and engineering fill for new construction.
Wood is chipped and recycled for other wood products; other yard waste is processed into compost or mulch.
GENERAL NON-RECYCLABLE GARBAGE
TIN AND STEEL
Metals processed for recycling, shipped to world markets, based on commodity pricing, or melted down.
