Sauder’s revitalized facility wins major architectural award


Sauder School of Business

The Sauder School of Business’s innovative facility renewal and expansion project has been recognized with a 2011 Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia Award in Architecture from the Architectural Institute of British Columbia.

The award was presented to project designers, Acton Ostry Architects Inc.for their work on the $85-million project that added 50,000 square feet to the existing 216,000 square feet of the school’s original building on UBC campus.

The renewed facilities include a new home for Sauder’s Robert H. Lee Graduate School, as well as a dedicated undergraduate centre. Also included are new classrooms with the flexibility to accommodate changes in teaching techniques and technology, open areas for students to socialize, and conference spaces and meeting rooms for students, alumni and the business community to connect.
