UBC Biological Sciences Complex New Photography
As originally intended and envisioned, the landscape at the Biological Sciences Complex has filled in the sloping grade and climbing vines are well on their way to enveloping the face of the facility.
The LEED Gold project included a seismic upgrade and major renewal of the South and West wings in 2011.
In 2012 the lower level was outfitted with a new state-of-the-art aquatic research facility that includes aquatics laboratories, aquaculture systems, and environmental chambers for the Department of Zoology.
