One of the top arts education facilities in Canada, Mount Allison’s new $30-million infrastructure investment in The Purdy Crawford Centre for the Arts provides superb facilities for teaching as well as for performance, and creative pursuits in Fine Arts and Drama.

This fifty thousand square foot building is clad in Rock faced Cove Red coursed Ashlar sandstone. The dressing was especially proud to give the stunning effect the architect required. The Centre has received three Green Globes with an achievement of 31% savings over the Model National Energy Code for Buildings in Canada. Sustainable design focused on creating a high quality interior environment with respect to air quality, daylighting and energy management. The building is almost entirely naturally ventilated.
