Welcome to the Major Capital Projects homepage. Working with other Facilities Management and Planning staff, consultants and contractors, we are responsible for overseeing the planning, design, co-ordination and implementation of Carleton University’s major capital projects. Below are the highlights of our major projects.

New Student Residence  

Architect / Consultants Diamond Schmitt Architects and KWC Architects in Joint Venture
General Contractor M. Sullivan & Son Limited
Construction Phase Commencing Winter 2022
Occupancy Date
Description The new student residence building will provide a modern dwelling accommodation for new first-year students, as well as various amenity spaces for all students on campus.  The building will be designed to promote and enhance a student-focused residential community experience and will incorporate Passive House Design principals to achieve a high level of sustainability.
It will be located at the north section of campus within the existing residence precinct. The new building will face the main campus entrance on University Drive toward Bronson Avenue. Such a prominent location is intended to reflect a design of a gateway building upon entry to the university to further showcase the campus. This new residence will bolster and reflect student social life, as well as the future of Carleton University within the City of Ottawa
The 450 plus bed building will consist of 168 single-rooms and 142 double-rooms, plus two, two-bedroom apartments.
