The Port Alberni campus is one of the major centres in NIC’s network. We formulated a development strategy for the provision of a new college facility to be located in a park near a community centre. Specifically, we determined the facilities required; explored the implications of the new NIC facility in the context of the park development plan; estimated construction costs; and compared implementation options in terms of the relative involvement of private and public sectors. Subsequently, we were requested to revise the plan by dividing the building program into three phases. The total project budget for the proposed 5600 square metres college was $5.75 million. Completed in 1988.
