The University of British Columbia has re-opened the Biological Sciences Complex, a series of 50-year-old buildings that have been upgraded to become highly sustainable buildings.

Renovations include using sunlight as a natural light source, installing energy-saving heating and cooling systems, installing an exterior water management system and using British Columbia wood products within the building.

UBC received $61.8 million for the project through the government of Canada’s Knowledge Infrastructure Program.
