Designed to be an exemplary educational facility and teaching tool, TELUS Spark integrates four themed pavilions: Life Sciences, Space Earth and Environment, Technology and Design, and Energy and Innovation. It hosts approximately half a million visitors a year and doubles the capacity of the previous facility while reducing energy use.

The high performance building envelope uses solar shading, natural light and has a solar ready roof. Featuring the reclamation of a previously contaminated site and high building standards, the facility is a living example of urban and environmental renewal through sustainable stewardship.
"What people thought a science centre should be, we're hoping to show you there's a whole lot more."
Jennifer Martin, CEO, TELUS Spark
