Hebb Building Renewal
The Hebb Building is a 5,960 square metre, 1960s modernist building located on the University of British Columbia Point Grey Campus, that was originally designed by Thompson Berwick and Pratt Architects. The renewal includes reconfiguration of the six storey classroom block to support contemporary pedagogy for the Department of Physics and Astronomy that will feature extensive transparency between collaborative teaching lab spaces. Key program elements include: acoustic and optic labs; large format classrooms; student learning centre, workshop, rooftop telescope dome, lecture theatre, and a new pedestrian bridge link to the adjacent Hennings Building. The extensive renewal includes a full seismic upgrade, new sprinkler system, replacement of the building sytems, elevator upgrades, and improvements to the building envelope.
