Coinciding with the development for a Campus Masterplan, Lethbridge College began the process to develop a dorm-style student residence building on campus for 109 students. The student rooms are as unique as each student with windows placed to create a dynamic exterior and unique interior light conditions for each unit. The large lounge located on the top floor enjoys a panoramic views of the city as well as an uninterrupted view of the mountains to the west. This green building utilizes passive ventilation, solar domestic hot water heating, rain water collection for irrigation, xeriscaping, and a highly insulated exterior skin, all to reduce operating costs and the facility’s environmental footprint.
