CK Choi Building, UBC, Vancouver

3-storey research building with holistic sustainable goals. The project goals included minimizing the use of natural resources, lowering energy, waste and water use, and maximizing the use of renewable resources such as daylighting and natural ventilation. The project used over 70% salvaged materials including the use of salvaged timbers from a deconstructed 70yr. old building. These timbers formed the main structure for the building.

Other salvaged materials included brick on the exterior of the building. The building uses minimal finishes and is demountable for re-use of the structure in the future.
