Canada Green Building Council Silver logo

This project saw the old labs and offices in the Thornbrough Building refurbished, including a major wet lab renovation in the core of the building. A small, single storey addition was added along with a canopy on the west side adjacent to Winegard Walk.

Careful coordination on this tight site was required to accommodate pedestrians and bus access and to respect the occupants in other areas of the building. The Richards Building was completely gutted and equipped with dry labs, office space and a 200 seat lecture hall. Four storeys of extensive asbestos removal was required. This project achieved Silver Certification by the LEED® Canada Green Building Rating System.
