- Training and certifications
- Productivity and innovation
- Applied research
- Industry conferences and events
The PIC building is located on the north side of Main Campus and is the home of Industry Solutions. We have numerous flexible workspaces that are adaptable in size and functionality, which gives our industry partners and clients a place to expand ideas and explore solutions. The building is designed to LEED Building and Construction certification standards, recognizing sustainability in design and construction. Solar panels installed above the glass canopy in the main foyer will generate 58 kilowatts of electricity per hour and will be used in distributed energy research.
NAIT is grateful for the $34.9M in funding from the Government of Canada’s Post-Secondary Institutions Strategic Investment Fund, which made the Productivity and Innovation Centre possible.
