Laboratory and IT Facilities

The emergence of new technology has provided opportunities for innovation and creativity.

Most recently Parkwood completed three projects at the National Research Council facility at UBC for fuel cell research. Not only is the research cutting edge but also the facilities are the latest in delivery of process gasses, electrical and data controls together with safety systems for the researchers.

Working closely with consulting engineers and user groups the labs were successfully completed and are currently in operation. Other projects include renovations to various facilities for UBC Earth & Ocean Sciences Department.

Laboratories require installation of specialized equipment and safety systems. Parkwood has delivered these on a number of projects. We have built labs for private researchers, UBC, and other institutions.
