Project Summary

The University of Saskatchewan’s new Collaborative Sciences Research Building received a $30.1 million investment from the Government of Canada. The facility houses the biology and agricultural disciplines; with the goal to further develop more efficient bio-based energy systems. CiF assisted the University with designing state-of-the-art laboratories that promote interdisciplinary collaboration.
