Awarded university status in 2009 and with a core purpose of personalized learning and student achievement, Mount Royal University (MRU) had outgrown its existing Science and Technology facilities. With aspirations to enhance the current science curriculum, exceptional learning opportunities required exceptional facilities.
We partnered with the university and contractor from day one of the project, making the seamless transition from initial design to project completion. With a focus on enhanced student spaces and facilities that maximize learning, our architects designed formal classroom and lab spaces alongside informal meeting places for students.
Today, if you’re an MRU student, you benefit from modern, bright, and airy classrooms, state-of-the-art labs, and informal meeting places where you can discuss next week's group project or last night's party. Staff and faculty teach in the best classrooms and labs, maximizing class time and enhancing student achievement.
Forward-thinking teaching and research labs include biology, geography, geology, earth sciences, chemistry, archaeology, and anthropology. Each lab is designed specifically to meet the needs of lab professors and students. For example, the chemistry lab, prep rooms, and instrumentation room are sized for 18-24 students with controlled temperature and pressurization to maximize accuracy of test results.
