- Teaching Space
A free-standing 3-storey lecture pavilion, including theatres and classrooms, faces the addition in the Engineering Courtyard.
- Model Behaviour
The building exceeds UBC’s sustainability targets and includes a radiant cooling slab system allowing a performance rate of 50% of the model national energy.
