New Academic Health Science Building

To accommodate the recent new Health Science program and the Neuroscience program and to take advantage of and support the synergies that exist between these two programs Carleton University has built a new Academic Health Science building for these two programs.

The design and layout of the labs, offices and workspace are such to help encourage and facilitate collaborative interaction between faculty and students.

The new building has seven floors and one mezzanine.  The total building area is approximately 120,000 square feet, and is located east of the Steacie building.

Key Building Details

  • The first floor has a lecture theatre. There is a mezzanine at the back of the lecture theatre to also allow entry/exit at the back of the lecture theatre.
  • The second, third, fourth and seventh floors have labs, lab support space, research support space, offices and student workstations.
  • The fifth and sixth floors are shell space to allow for future program growth.
  • There is a ground level enclosed connection between the building and the Steacie building.
  • Each floor has its own mechanical/electrical room. This is to allow for minimal disruptions to other floors when work on one floor is taking place.
