Creating connections for a healthy city

Foster a vibrant academic environment and new communities of living and learning at Ryerson University by supporting the Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex.

Scheduled for occupancy in the fall of 2018, this multifunctional hub will house four schools from Ryerson’s Faculty of Community Services, together with student accommodation and administrative offices. The School of Nutrition, the School of Occupational and Public Health, the Midwifery Education program and the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing will form — for the first time — a purposeful cluster of schools connected to the health sciences.

Designed by the internationally acclaimed architectural firm Perkins + Will, the complex features outstanding spaces that encourage not only cross-disciplinary connections among students, faculty and staff — but also interaction between the activities of the building and its surrounding community. These experiences celebrate a holistic approach to health and wellness.

Your support will realize the power in this transformation.

A catalyst for innovation and excellence, transforming education and the city

• Eight-storey podium features enhanced academic and administrative spaces

• Student residence tower provides 100 residential units to house 332 students

• Four schools in one coherent cluster fostering collaboration

• Clinical experience suites

• Modular teaching labs

• High-fidelity simulation suites

• Debriefing rooms

• Formal and informal study spaces

• Course union, lounge and office areas

• LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold compliant

• Green roofs

• Greywater collection and reuse

• Bicycle parking

• A Future Lab with 3D printers, robotic arms, a laser cutter and CNC lathes for prototyping

The Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex will offer Ryerson students state-of- the-art facilities, fostering the kind of creative collaboration that sparks innovation. Its presence in the streetscape will invite the urban experience into the life of the campus and vice versa, bringing new vitality to the surrounding community.

A hub for interdisciplinary collaboration

Built to foster opportunities to interact and collaborate

Currently, the schools and programs connected to the health sciences are scattered across Ryerson campus. By bringing them together, the Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex creates outstanding opportunities for cross-disciplinary teaching, learning and research that take a holistic approach to health and wellness.

Healthy and sustainable choices at the Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex are encouraged by design. A prominent staircase invites users to be more active, while parking space for more than 250 bicycles inspires students, faculty and staff to leave their cars at home.

• A high-visibility metering and monitoring system communicates consumption and performance information.

• A micro-grid system relies upon micro-turbines to produce electricity on site.

• A network of energy-storing local batteries promotes resilience in extreme weather and provides power to the building — even when the city grid is down.

• Greywater collected from showers and sinks is used to flush toilets — reducing water use by millions of litres per year.

In a building designed to test and evaluate its own systems and planning, students in Occupational Public and Public Occupational Health can monitor the effects of design and building practices on the work environment, and, in turn, gain real-world knowledge of health, safety and well-being.

It should also come as no surprise that the complex will be certified LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold — an international mark of excellence for green building.

Facilities that promote exceptional learning experiences

Effective, efficient space accommodates the full range of future teaching and learning models

New purpose-built classroom and laboratory space at the Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex — together with up-to-date equipment and enhanced functionality — provide an enormous opportunity for resident schools to significantly enhance their educational offering.

Two simulation labs and a health assessment lab provide double the lab space for the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing. Now limited in capacity, these spaces are critical to foundational nursing skills and are used extensively at all levels. By giving nursing the room it needs to grow into the future, the new complex delivers further value to the program.

State-of-the-art labs that emulate the hospital, clinical and workplace conditions found in professional environments and newly acquired equipment — such as life-size and skills-based medical mannequins — position nursing students with the knowledge and skills needed for success in the real world.

Space is used effectively and promotes efficiency. A cleaning space allows technicians to prepare materials for the next class, while debrief rooms provide opportunities for private or more focused feedback. Nursing students, now forced to change in the hallways, gain access to change rooms and lockers in the new space.

And that’s not all:

• Midwifery benefits from a larger and more flexible classroom, with satellite clinical rooms for examinations and role play.

• Nutrition gets new state-of-the-art food labs, together with a new demonstration kitchen equipped with cameras and projection.

• Occupational and Public Health gains a microbiological lab and a new chemical lab — both well equipped to take them into the future.

Animation and activity

A building that cares for its neighbourhood, its community and its city

The Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex is a touchstone for the ongoing revitalization of Church Street, bringing pedestrian energy and activity to an important area of our campus and the city.

Ryerson has a strong track record of success as a catalyst for change and renewal both on campus and in the university’s downtown neighbourhood. The Mattamy Athletic Centre at Maple Leaf Gardens returned crowds to the country’s most historic sports arena, while the Ryerson Image Centre is helping establish Toronto as an international photography destination. The new Student Learning Centre is leading a transformation of Yonge Street.

Your support can help the Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex take its place among these city-building projects — all of which put students first and, in the process, bring new vibrancy to their immediate surroundings.

What’s in a name?

A dedication to helping others

The Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex is named to recognize the far-reaching generosity of Jack Cockwell, whose mother Daphne dedicated her life to helping others.

It is in this giving spirit that the schools and programs housed in the facility work to have an impact on our communities. They bring their knowledge and inquiry directly to people, and support community safety, health and wellbeing.

By contributing to the Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex, you make it possible to create more powerful learning experiences for our students, bring vibrancy to the immediate surroundings and give critical mass to Ryerson’s longstanding work to create a healthier society.
