Counselling Services Temporary Extension

Project Snapshot

Occupancy: December 2019
Project Manager: UBC Project Services – Kate West
Architect: Metric Modular and Ryder Architecture
Project Sponsor: VP Students

Project Summary

A new modular building is underway to re-locate the counselling services currently offered in Lower Mall Research Station, to improve service and access for students. The modular building will provide a new space where booked counselling appointments will take place adjacent to ongoing services already provided in Brock Hall.

The new building will be constructed of modules fabricated off-site to reduce the construction schedule, enabling the provision of services earlier than conventional construction time. The temporary facility is a short-term space solution that will serve students until an Integrated Health Services facility is constructed. Once the short-term use for Counselling Services has ended, this modular building will become part of the inventory of swing space for UBC Vancouver campus, and can be relocated to any available location as required.
