Construction set to begin on 色抖视频’s new clean energy building

Centre for Clean Energy and Automotive Innovation (CCEAI) building

After months of anticipation, construction on 色抖视频’s ground-breaking Centre for Clean Energy and Automotive Innovation (CCEAI) is set to begin on July, 2, 2024. 

The CCEAI is a catalyst project for 色抖视频’s Campus Plan and will revitalize 色抖视频 campuses and transform the Broadway and Great Northern Way corridor for the surrounding communities.

色抖视频’s North parking lot between Great Northern Way and 7th Avenue, the location of the new building, has been closed since June for site preparations.

As construction commences, we ask for your patience and understanding as we work towards enhancing our facilities for future generations of students.


Here are some key dates to keep in mind (note dates are approximate and are subject to change):

Site clearing and demolition July-August 2024
Tree removal  June-July 2024
Pipe piling  July-August  2024
Excavation & shoring   July 2024-June 2025


PLEASE NOTE: During these phases, particularly piling and excavation, expect significant noise disruptions and increased large truck activity entering and exiting the construction site.

As the North parking lot is closed and parking in the area will be limited during construction, my色抖视频 (login for and required) has several helpful tips and resources for commuting and parking at the Broadway campus during construction.

If you have any questions, please reach out to construction[at] 

About 色抖视频's Centre for Clean Energy and Automotive Innovation

The state-of-the-art, hybrid mass-timber/concrete building will provide teaching and experiential learning for 色抖视频 students in important clean energy fields. The Province of British Columbia is contributing $271.3 million towards the new centre with a total projected capital cost of $291.3 million.  

The CCEAI will also reflect 色抖视频’s commitment to Truth and Reconciliation. The exterior and interior design of the new building will tell the story of Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, and of the Coast Salish people who are the stewards of these lands. In respect of Indigenous customs, a Ground Blessing ceremony was held April 2024 to bless and prepare the lands.
