Health Sciences Centre (HSC)
Currently a portion of White Avenue between Goard Way and Smith Street will be closed due to construction of the new HSC building. As a result, the capacity of Lot 15 will be reduced and entrance to White Avenue will be blocked off at Goard Way. We ask drivers and pedestrians to use alternate campus routes. For ongoing project notices, please visit the Campus Notices webpage.
In March of 2017, the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills & Training approved funding for a new Health Sciences building on the Burnaby Campus. In addition to providing modern teaching and learning spaces, the Health Sciences Centre (HSC) will support the collaborative delivery of programs to students and serve as a primary gateway into the Burnaby Campus. Ultimately, the HSC is an essential anchor for our larger campus development plan.
Student housing electrical service upgrade project
Student Housing Electrical Service Upgrade is the first area of Burnaby’s South Campus to be upgraded to BC Hydro’s new standard of connection and delivery. Similar to the North Campus Infrastructure Project, this is an essential upgrade to electrical infrastructure that improves reliability and while advancing the institute’s sustainability goals by allowing for improved delivery and management of energy.
For the duration of the project, the construction zone along Fairey Street and a portion of White Avenue will be fenced off. Due to the extent of excavation required for manhole installation, a section of White Avenue will be closed to vehicle traffic from November 14 to December 16, 2019. Pedestrian access will be maintained through the zone. We appreciate your patience during this time.
If you have any questions about this scheduled construction, please contact James Woo at 778-945-6129.
