Science Complex - UQAMMONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC, CANADA
The major architectural project within the Pierre Dansereau Science Complex at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) consists essentially of four buildings that were built or restored despite multiple urban planning and budgetary constraints. The Biological Sciences Pavilion is certified LEED silver and comprises all of the classrooms and research facilities. The “Science Core,” a centre for the dissemination and popularization of scientific information, consists of completely renovated heritage buildings, i.e. the former boiler house, its chimney and the forge. The institutional pavilion houses the Montréal offices of Téluq. The student residence houses 500 people and offers units with various layouts. UQAM thus becomes a dominant player in the dissemination of scientific knowledge and contributes to Québecers’ scientific culture.
