Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research Station Expansion


University of Saskatchewan
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

The expansion of the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research Station on the University of Saskatchewan Campus was a two-phased project completed in the spring of 1998. The first phase was the addition of the Scientific Support Wing which houses public reception and display, offices, meeting rooms, a library, staff room, and a computer centre. The second phase includes a header house with general laboratories, two level 3 containment laboratories, hazardous receiving, storage and dispensing, six greenhouses, a Phytotron, spray technology centre, and loading facilities. Second phase of the project is linked to the original building by the inclusion of the Plant Genetic Resource Canada (PGRC) Centre. The PGRC is Canada’s seed gene bank and represents an exciting inclusion to Saskatoon’s research centre.
