The UBC Geological Field Station is located in Oliver, British Columbia adjacent to the White Lake Grasslands Protected Area. The new facility will replace existing, aging camp buildings that have reached the end of their lifespan. The Field Station complex consists of: a main building with learning, dining and kitchen functions; a faculty cabin; and, heavy duty tent structures for students. The design expression is functional, spare and simple. The Geological Field Station will be used by students and faculty of the UBC Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences.
The redevelopment of Vancouver College focuses on the creation of a sense of place for the only all boys independent Catholic school in British Columbia. A new courtyard will connect new middle school and elementary school buildings with existing senior school facilities. Key components include a new chapel, residences for the Christian Brothers, and retention of the historic 1924 Lannon Hall facade and McCormack Hall entry doors, both iconic connections to Vancouver College’s historic past.
The Phase 1A Manrell Hall middle school was completed in 2018. The Phase 1B elementary school and chapel are scheduled for completion in 2020.
