UBC MacLeod Renew
The MacLeod Building is the home of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Faculty at UBC. This extensive renovation project, currently under construction, is a sensitive architectural refit of a building designed by one of Vancouver’s most celebrated firms Thompson Burwick & Pratt.
The project includes seismic upgrades and building code updates, which required demolition down to the building’s basic structural elements. Floorplans will be reconstructed according to extensive reprogramming to meet ECE’s current and planned future pedagogical aspirations and 21st Century learning. The completed building will include special program sections, such as workshops, maker spaces supporting 3D printing, and system on a chip labs focussed on circuit board construction. The project is in collaboration with Teeple Architects.
