To meet growing and evolving academic and student needs of the Durham College and the University Of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT), WSP, in association with Greenberg Consultants Inc. and Educational Consulting Services, was retained to undertake a Joint Campus Master Plan. The objective of the Plan was to be forward-looking in addressing land use and infrastructure development focusing on the shared North Oshawa Campus and the largely undeveloped institutional lands associated with Windfields Farms, while also considering the projected growth at Durham College’s Whitby Campus and UOIT’s Downtown Oshawa location.

Through its management of the project and provision of urban design, planning, landscape architecture, transportation, active transportation, servicing and sustainability services WSP was able to help its client create a vision for a more walkable, transit-oriented and connected campus that meets the academic space needs and provides adequate spaces for social, athletic, retail and service uses. The master plan also established a joint vision for future campus development, while accommodating the unique needs of the College, University and their respective students.
