2 January 2004Facilities Management Division, University of Saskatchewan College Building Project Budget: $20,700,000Source of Funds: University and Provincial Funding Project Type: Renovation General Contractor: PCL Construction Construction Start: December 2003 Projected Move In Date: Summer 2005 Project Delivery Method: Public Tender, Low Bid (pre-qualified contractors) – construction cost $2,200/sq.m. Overview: Project Budget: $20,700,000Source of Funds: University and Provincial Funding Project Type: Renovation General Contractor: PCL Construction Construction Start: December 2003 Projected Move In Date: Summer 2005 Project Delivery Method: Public Tender, Low Bid (pre-qualified contractors) – construction cost $2,200/sq.m. Overview: The College Building was the first building to be built on the University of Saskatchewan Campus. It forms the centerpiece of what has been called the finest collection of Collegiate Gothic style buildings in Canada. The University of Saskatchewan was the first University in Canada to incorporate its Agriculture College, the buildings first occupant, within the university campus. It was the means by which the University would demonstrate its involvement in the community and its usefulness to the province. n Sir Wilfrid Laurier laid the cornerstone of the College Building on July 29, It is the intent of the University to rededicate the site, including the elliptical landscaped Bowl west of the College Building, as the “Sir Wilfrid Laurier College Building”. n The College Building site was designated as a Provincial Heritage Property on November 24, 1982 and a national historic site on February 26, n The College Building conservation project will evoke its original splendour and serve as a showcase for our historic, ethnic and cultural diversity. The achievement of technical & scientific excellence & the pursuit of fairness & equal opportunity in all aspects of our society will be a prominent theme. It will gather together disparate University cultural facilities, bring University governance to a prominent and accessible place on the campus and create new space for student focused facilities. n The project will provide new initiatives that are a part of a unified vision for the University. This vision provides for participation by Canadians at the community, provincial & national levels in an historic, ethnic, cultural and academic exploration of achievement.

3 January 2004Facilities Management Division, University of Saskatchewan Impact of CIS n 1) Identify Character –Defining Elements n The CIS provided the basis for implementing the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada by articulating heritage value and identifying Character Defining Elements. n 2) Determine the Primary Treatment n The primary treatment according to the Standards and Guidelines is a combination of Preservation and Rehabilitation. n There are 3 basic components to the College Building Rehabilitation Project n Addition (new atrium space and infill) (~? Net sq.m.) n Rehabilitation (replacement of structure and interior work) ( ~ ? Net sq.m.) n Preservation (Convocation Hall, interior corridors, exterior facade) (~ ? Net Sq.m.) n 3) Review the Standards #1: Conserve the character-defining elements of a historic place. Don’t remove, replace, or substantially alter its intact or repairable character-defining elements. Don’t move a component of a historic place if its current location is a character-defining element n 4) Follow the Guidelines for the Appropriate Resource Type and Treatment n 5) Undertake the Project Work n 1) Identify Character –Defining Elements n The CIS provided the basis for implementing the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada by articulating heritage value and identifying Character Defining Elements. n 2) Determine the Primary Treatment n The primary treatment according to the Standards and Guidelines is a combination of Preservation and Rehabilitation. n There are 3 basic components to the College Building Rehabilitation Project n Addition (new atrium space and infill) (~?

5 January 2004Facilities Management Division, University of Saskatchewan n Exterior Façade: - High priority - Centerpiece of the finest collection of College Gothic buildings in Canada, therefore, the exterior in general is considered a Character-Defining Element. - Investigation was done to report any structural problems and document the architectural stone work. - Very sympathetic where new addition occurs leaving as much of the existing wall visible as possible with no alterations. n Exterior Façade: - High priority - Centerpiece of the finest collection of College Gothic buildings in Canada, therefore, the exterior in general is considered a Character-Defining Element. - Investigation was done to report any structural problems and document the architectural stone work. - Very sympathetic where new addition occurs leaving as much of the existing wall visible as possible with no alterations.

6 January 2004Facilities Management Division, University of Saskatchewan n Windows: - The heritage priority of the exterior coincided with the excellent historic integrity of the exterior windows. The exterior sashes and glazing will be preserved and repaired. - The historic integrity of the interior sashes was not high in most of the building and a rehabilitation direction was chosen, replacing the interior sashes with sealed double glazed units with the same divisions and swinging in for cleaning. A mockup was commissioned to test this direction - In Convocation Hall, the integrity of the interior sashes was excellent and these will be preserved consistent with the preservation treatment of the space. n Windows: - The heritage priority of the exterior coincided with the excellent historic integrity of the exterior windows.

7 January 2004Facilities Management Division, University of Saskatchewan n Interior Corridors: - High priority. - Consisting of War Memorial plaques, terra cotta wall finishes (with clay tile back-up), slate, granite and tile flooring, oak doors with transoms. - Some of the plaques were unstable and were removed (these will be re-installed when project is complete). Some will be left in place and protected. - Corridor ceilings will consist of a new structural system bracing existing elements. New finishes will hide the new structure and mimic existing ceiling profile – existing ceilings will remain to allow for ‘reversibility’. - Corridors are horded to protect them from construction work n Interior Corridors: - High priority. - Consisting of War Memorial plaques, terra cotta wall finishes (with clay tile back-up), slate, granite and tile flooring, oak doors with transoms. - Some of the plaques were unstable and were removed (these will be re-installed when project is complete).

8 January 2004Facilities Management Division, University of Saskatchewan n Interior walls and plaster - Low priority. - Because the existing structure is being replaced and coupled with improving the wall’s performance and allowing for further investigation into the existing façade’s back-up structure, the majority of the clay tile and plaster wall around the building’s exterior will be removed - Already found deteriorated concrete lintels. n Interior walls and plaster - Low priority. - Because the existing structure is being replaced and coupled with improving the wall’s performance and allowing for further investigation into the existing façade’s back-up structure, the majority of the clay tile and plaster wall around the building’s exterior will be removed - Already found deteriorated concrete lintels.

10 January 2004Facilities Management Division, University of Saskatchewan n Convocation Hall - High priority. - Treated as a preservation project. - Defining elements include acoustics. - Original skylights will be restored – c/w new automatic blinds. - Balcony structure requires replacement. - Originally, steel elements were going to be exposed but due to the new sprinkler system and coordination, a new ceiling will be installed hiding these new elements. - Original plaster ceiling will remain hidden with parts exposed. n Convocation Hall - High priority. - Treated as a preservation project. - Defining elements include acoustics. - Original skylights will be restored – c/w new automatic blinds. - Balcony structure requires replacement. - Originally, steel elements were going to be exposed but due to the new sprinkler system and coordination, a new ceiling will be installed hiding these new elements. - Original plaster ceiling will remain hidden with parts exposed. “The hall is magnificent for music, acoustically. This has been confirmed by every visiting musician of any standing. My personal opinion is that there is no finer hall of equal size.” - Murray Adaskin “The hall is magnificent for music, acoustically.
