A large-scale renovation project for University of Toronto Mississauga has addressed critical facility issues including back-up power, updated electrical power, air handling, installation of high-efficiency fume hoods, and core facilities for cell culture and microscope work – all to give a 1970’s-era building modern research capabilities. Stepanka Elias examines project management strategies employed to facilitate fast-track upgrades in an active research environment with little swing space, and specific technology and sustainability investments that are delivering significant improvements in the research workplace environment and energy efficiency.
