CIGI Campus

CIGI Campus

The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) contracted GHD to execute a significant brownfield redevelopment project as part of the design and construction of an academic campus in uptown Waterloo, Ontario. The property was formerly occupied by a large distillery that operated for over 100 years.

The project included the design and construction of an academic campus on a 1.56 hectare property, which comprised the construction of the CIGI Campus (a three-storey, 114,000 square foot building) and upgrades to Father David Bauer Drive. GHD supported the development of the master plan for the entire project.
