“Wood floors, primary colours, whiteboards everywhere and not a single lecture hall – the new Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence packs all the hallmarks of a Google or Facebook operation, and purposely so.”
– Peter Nowak, Globe & Mail
Once the doors opened in September of 2015, the Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence immediately became one of Toronto’s most iconic buildings.
5 floors and over 160,000 square feet of inspirational learning and research spaces are shrouded by over 5,000 triangles, assembled in a geometric pattern also known as the penrose.
The plaza is home to garage bays for large-scale student and club projects. These bays are directly connected to the fabrication and machine shop.
Make It, Quick
The Berg is home to two design labs.
The Sandbox, located on Level 2, provides small scale prototyping tools including laser cutters and 3D printing.
Want to build something a bit bigger? The Project Commons shop on Level 0 has all the machines you’ll need to make almost anything that can fit through one of the garage bays that are directly connected.
The bays are reserved exclusively for student and club projects.
The Sandbox, formerly known as Design Commons, was named by our students for the serious play atmosphere.
Learning isn’t restricted to the classroom. You need places to study, connect and co-create. Whether you want a quiet nook for reflection or a spot for your club to host its next event, we’ve got a space for you.
