PROJECT COMPLETION DATE:
Comfortable furniture: Height-adjustable swivel seats provide flexibility and comfort.
Supports collaboration: Large tables allow small groups to be formed and swivel chairs allow students to communicate with peers behind and in front.
Easy access and movement in space: The centre aisle improves flow and promotes engagement. The modest reduction in seat capacity resulted in an increase of space per student.
New room technology: Wireless presentation is enable in the space and a media capture recorder with an accompanying HD camera is available for the instructor to use. Laser projectors display content in high definition.
Spacious work surfaces: The large shared tables provide ample space for notebooks, laptops, and textbooks.
Sustainable building practices: Material selection strategies were used to promote cost-effective, durable, and low cost maintenance of the space.
Accessibility considerations: There are automatic door openers at the room's entrances and multiple accessible seating options in the space. Compared to the old tablet seats, the new tables are ergonomic and suitable for right and left-handed students.
