Turner Breaks Ground on the University of British Columbia Arts Student Centre

July 20, 2020

The team from Turner Construction Company’s Vancouver office in Canada, alongside Leckie Studio Architecture + Design Inc. and UBC Properties Trust officially broke ground for the future University of British Columbia Arts Student Centre — a stand-alone three-story facility, intended to improve the academic, social, personal, and professional lives of the University’s Arts students.

The multi-purpose facility will provide much-needed amenities to support the learning, social, collaboration and innovation space needs of a diverse Faculty of Arts student population. The 10,000 square foot Centre will include a range of targeted activity spaces and amenities to support creative engagement, including media production, video conferencing and graphics production spaces as well as a student-run art gallery. The building's exterior will have a striking, contemporary design, highlighted by a system of window fins that provide both architectural character and solar shading.

“This is an exciting time for the Business Unit as we expand our scope into more core and shell work in the Vancouver market,” said Turner’s Vice President and General Manager, Amit Patel.

The team looks forward to starting construction on this exciting addition to the University of British Columbia Arts Student Centre.
