The Tug Collective’s work is never done, but we’re certainly much closer to being done with the help of PCR Contractors, the company contracted to build the new Centre for Engineering Innovation on campus.
It turns out the build site was rich with things like clay, dirt, rubble, and even a bale of straw! A phone call to Darryl Rocheleau, a representitive of PCR, in response to a kijiji ad led us to a visit to the job site, which got us everything we needed to create the daub that formed the bulk of our sound wall experimentation process.
The CEI is, in its own right, an interesting green initiative. It represents the largest Gold LEED building in the region, and utilizes many green building techniques–such as a green roof, low-energy heating, and water recycling to name a few. Designed by B+H Architects, the CEI represents a commitment to excellence in environmental engineering by the University.
