Ottawa, ON (November 16, 2021) – PCL Construction is happy to announce that it is partnering with the University of Ottawa on the design and construction of its new Faculty of Health Sciences building.

This new complex, situated along the Rideau River, will become the new centralized education hub and research facility for the University of Ottawa’s health science programs, including their nursing program.

“We are happy to be working with the University of Ottawa again, this time on their new Faculty of Health Sciences campus,” said PCL Ottawa District Manager Paul Knowles. “This state-of-the-art complex will not only create a centralized health sciences education hub, but has been designed to provide seamless access to the Lees Avenue Ottawa Light Rail Transit (OLRT) station, increased riverside green space, and Indigenous learning centres.”

PCL Ottawa will be working closely with partners Architecture 49 and WSP to create a building that balances the beauty of the surrounding riverside community, while providing staff and students with safe, public access to the campus.

“For decades to come, the Faculty of Science at the University of Ottawa will continue to attract the brightest minds to our community,” Knowles explained. “And PCL Ottawa is excited to play a small part in supporting that success.”
