The 87,000 sf Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre at Fleming College brings together theoretical teaching and applied learning in a dynamic new environment that emphasizes program visibility, technology and collaborative learning. Connected to the existing main social and academic building, the KTTC houses SMART classrooms, faculty offices and administrative spaces, as well as teaching workshops, bulk project storage, and a 27,000-sf flexible multi-disciplinary project space called the “learning factory.” Inside, on the upper level, a large common area with WiFi enabled lounge areas, chalkboard walls and presentation areas overlook the central Learning Factory, offering a dynamic venue for users of the building and campus alike. Organized in a split level that engages the topography of the site and conceived as two interlocking, shed-like volumes, the building’s form is loosely derived from an industrial typology.
