Thompson Rivers University wanted to create a state of the art facility, hence they involved KCS staff in the design and execution of this project.
What is currently the most advanced and impressive health sciences teaching facility in Canada had KCS personnel involved from the outset. The new Health Sciences Centre (HSC) located at the BCIT Burnaby campus in greater Vancouver, BC opened its doors in September of 2022 after 5 years of planning, design and construction.

Members of KCS have product development experience with numerous vendors, such as Microsoft (Hololens AR) and CAE (patient simulators) . We are intimately familiar with the product development process from initial business case development to beta testing.
Since its inception in 2001 as the CESEI, through its expansions in 2010 to a clinical academic campus and its renewal and relocation in 2019, Marcel Schoenenberger was responsible for the A/V, capture and debriefing systems, network and human patient simulation systems design for the VGH Simulation Centre.
KCS staff worked very closely with the project design team and the Langara College Facilities Management team to the develop the AV systems, applied teaching and learning modalities and the capture and debriefing systems required for the new Langara College School of Nursing Simulation Training Centre.
Members of the KCS team were involved in the NAIT Centre for Advanced Medical Simulation from the outset of the project. We supplied the AV design consulting in addition to the procurement and supply of their patient simulation fleet.
As the technology design lead for the distributed medical program from its inception in 2002 to the completion of the expansion in 2019, Marcel Schoenenberger was responsible for the conceptual development to implementation of the technology systems required ranging from the Audi-Visual systems, the distance learning videoconferencing and
As the technology design lead for the distributed medical program from its inception in 2002 to the completion of the expansion in 2019, Marcel Schoenenberger was responsible for the conceptual development to implementation of the technology systems required ranging from the Audi-Visual systems, the distance learning videoconferencing and network systems to the capture and debriefing systems and the human patient simulation systems, working closely with the involved institutional stakeholders such as the ministry of Health, UBC FoMm UVic, UNBC, UBCO and the regional health authorities and BC teaching hospitals. The original expansion included the four core universities which let to the expanding the program to over 120 clinical academic campuses across BC as part of MPAACT
KCS staff played a pivotal role in the development of the distance learning systems, the applied teaching modalities and the patient simulation systems for the new SickKids Learning and Research center located in Toronto, Ontario
Having been involved in numerous proof of concept exercises, KCS has consistently been part of what's coming. Whether it's mixed reality or virtual local area networks, we are on the leading edge.
