Driving innovation and exploration.

The NAIT Productivity and Innovation Centre (PIC) provides comprehensive support to students and industry. The building design enhances productivity, spurs innovation, fosters a deeper culture of entrepreneurship, and drives solutions to industry-driven problems through applied research.

The PIC’s unique architectural expression reinforces NAIT’s polytechnic campus design, while the building orientation on a unique triangular site addresses the campus context and the specific use of each space. Two space types organize the PIC’s diverse set of program elements into wings, while creating efficient and flexible spaces for learning and innovation. The two wings are connected by a light-filled atrium that supports collaboration and interaction between researchers.
