Project Summary

One of the seven buildings selected for renovation as part of the UBC Renew Project, in partnership with the Province of British Columbia. The 63,000 ft² building spread over 4 floors is home to the School of Rehabilitation Sciences and the School of Audiology; containing teaching and research labs and office space for the users. Both the teaching and research labs have integrated lighting audio-visual presentation systems and high device density for power and tel/data outlets.
