Work has started on NorQuest College’s downtown expansion, a project that will enable the college to continue to help meet Alberta’s workforce needs.
The Singhmar Centre for Learning is planned as a LEED Silver 22,500 m², four-storey building facing Capital Boulevard, flanked by 103 Avenue and 107 Street. It features labs, a daycare, a new library, food services, and student activity space.
The building also features a central atrium to provide light and space for student activities. The Singhmar Centre for Learning is to be connected to the existing building, the South Learning Centre.
Site preparation began in early 2014. The Singhmar Centre for Learning will be open in 2017 and renovations to the South Learning Centre will be complete in 2018.
The Government of Alberta has provided a $170 million grant for the $192.3 million project. Additional funding will be raised by NorQuest College through Maximizing Opportunities: The NorQuest Campaign.

On November 19, 2014 the Singhmar Centre for Learning was officially named after the Singhmar family following a $2.5 million donation to NorQuest.
