Currently Heatherbrae are the Construction Managers for the UBC Centre for Brain Health translational research facility adjacent to the UBC Hospital. Operationally it will be integrated with existing related Brain Research Centre, Institute for Mental Health, Department of Psychiatry and Division of Neurology facilities. The 135,000-square-foot project comprises two interlocking boxes, with clinical areas on the two lower levels, research areas on the two upper levels, and shared offices and meeting spaces on the middle level. A central atrium connects the building’s activities. Extensive high-performance glazing “puts science on display” to patients and the public while light-colored block walls enclose clinical areas to maintain patient privacy. Targeting a June 2013 completion, the center will have a vegetated roof and be 50 to 60 percent more energy efficient than a baseline building
