This project is a 2000m² renovation and 2200m² addition to an existing biology laboratory building on the Rideau Campus of Carleton University. It included 14 new research laboratories, growth chamber research rooms, 6 renovated laboratories, an aquatics laboratory, and office and support spaces for faculty and graduate students. It was the first phase of a 3 phase project in this quadrant of the campus. An integral part of this project was a connection to Carleton underground pedestrian and service tunnel systems, including new connection, increased intersection and associated intake/ exhaust air shafts.
