A student experience like no other

SAIT’s Green Building Technologies (GBT), Woodpecker European Timber Framing and an Alberta family have partnered to construct a one-of-a-kind home in the foothills of southern Alberta. Together, they hope “The Confluence” will achieve the highest possible certification through the Living Building Challenge, the world’s most rigorous green building rating program and sustainable design framework.

As part of their applied education, SAIT students left their own mark on this once-in-a-lifetime project, gaining career-building experience through practicum, capstone and volunteer opportunities. The GBT team — five of whom are SAIT graduates themselves — involved 19 SAIT students to support essential tasks including sourcing sustainably-certified wood, researching non-toxic cleaning products, designing the project website and creating architectural renderings.

DISCOVER THE CONFLUENCE

“Over the years, we have taken SAIT students on for practicums, and when there’s a good fit and the right opportunity, we have kept them on after they have completed their schooling. They have helped our team grow and bring innovation to our work.”

“Part of the Mechanical Design curriculum was learning how things are made, getting familiar with different materials, learning their structural integrity, and the drafting and design process. It’s one thing to have a great idea, but it’s something totally different to take it from design to production. What I enjoyed about the course is it was the right amount of theory and the right amount of hands-on training.”

— IVAN CILIC, Mechanical Design Technology '08
