Cumulus was engaged by CAMH to renovate an existing office space at their College Street site that will help connect researchers across the globe and improve opportunities for collaboration while fostering an open, team-science environment. The space is the new home of the Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics where scientists are working to fundamentally change our understanding of mental illness through state-of-the-art techniques including topological data analysis, machine learning, artificial intelligence and brain circuit modelling

The new dry-lab offers a collaborative, efficient, bright, and open research environment. A mix of formal, informal, private, and public spaces were designed to complement open workstation clusters and facilitate creative working relationships. Large touch-screens foster collaboration and double as a gallery for disseminating knowledge. Communal counter height tables in the kitchen welcome standing meetings, while a mix of conversation pods offer privacy and acoustical barriers for calls and one on one meetings.

As a long-standing client, Cumulus has completed many projects and studies for CAMH including the Queen Street Wellness Centre, Queen Street West Campus Mall Study. CAMH's next major project, and one of its most significant in recent years, is the Phase 1D Redevelopment - a new, highly specialized Forensics Building. Cumulus is currently teamed with Medical Architecture from the UK and Chefurka Consulting, working on the Master Plan/Program stage of the Phase 1D Redevelopment.
