Memorial University in Newfoundland and Labrador recently held the official opening of the spectacular Core Science Facility as federal, provincial and university representatives celebrated the construction of this sophisticated research and teaching building.
Designed by HOK and Hearn/Fougere Architecture, the building was inspired by the natural characteristics of the province, particularly icebergs. The main construction contract was completed by Marco Services Limited.
The project was completed on budget. The building is a national investment that generated construction spending in multiple provinces, the majority of which was performed by companies and workers from Newfoundland and Labrador. Almost two million tradesperson hours went into the building’s construction.
