The new health sciences centre will be a four-storey, 8,300-square-metre centre that will house 18 health science programs, such as community mental health, athletic and exercise therapy, and nursing, as well as university-transfer health programs. Camosun health science students will access a better learning environment, where they are able to learn side-by-side in a clinic-like setting. It will also allow programs to better share assets, such as simulation labs, and reduce energy use and operating costs. The new building will be adjacent to the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence and will provide the potential for learning opportunities involving users of the facility and students.
The Centre for Environmental Science and International Partnership at Royal Roads University includes major renovations and upgrades to the Mews building, a century-old, heritage structure, and the construction of an adjoining two-storey addition. The total scope of the project is 4,800 square metres, including 3,100 square metres of renovated space, and 1,700 square metres of new space.
The adjoining addition will include environmental science teaching labs and applied research space, student learning commons, facilities for computer labs, wet labs, academic support and integrated student service functions. The building will incorporate significant improved energy efficiency and sustainable design.
