​The College of New Caledonia Technical Education Centre is a new facility in Prince George, BC designed by the Office of McFarlane Biggar Architects + Designers (OMB). The 76,300 sqft structure was built using a custom fabricated and patinated weathering steel facade system by Dissimilar Metal Design. ​Known for its durability and environmentally friendly low maintenance properties, the facade serves as a material respectful to the beautiful and sensitive environment of British Columbia.

​The sustainability of the weathering steel material assisted the project team to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standard with a net zero increase in energy consumption. The project was completed in late 2018.
