University of Lethbridge Destination Project

The University of Lethbridge is building new facilities that will house a significant part of the science teaching and research activities on campus.

LETHBRIDGE, AB

The Destination Project is one of the largest projects ever undertaken in southern Alberta and is part of the university’s transformative Master Plan.

The new building will house a wide range of faculties, including Biological Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Neuroscience, Physics, and Astronomy, and incorporate a number of unique spaces, including wet and dry laboratories, greenhouse, herbarium, and vivarium.

To maximize the building’s performance, the design is seeking to achieve 61% reduction of operational costs for the office spaces and an unprecedented 60% for the laboratory spaces over conventional similar facilities with an average 63% energy reduction.

A range of classrooms from a 240-person lecture hall to smaller instruction rooms, offices for academia and graduate students, central stores, technical services workshops, and public spaces will be accommodated within the building.
