As Canada’s premier polytechnic institution, we are committed to improving public awareness of living architectural systems, such as green roofs and living walls, and building acoustics, as one of the building sciences, through education and demonstration both locally and globally.

The Centre integrates its research and technology transfer through its diploma and degree programs, as well as academic collaborations, and professional development for the design, architectural and engineering communities.
