The University of Winnipeg
Richardson College for the Environment and Science Complex
This state-of-the-art building located at 599 Portage Avenue is The University of Winnipeg's new home science, sustainability initiatives and community learning programs, attracting leading researchers from around the world to Winnipeg. Students and faculty alike engage in cutting-edge research in biology, chemistry, environmental studies, Indigenous science and the social sciences in one of the most energy efficient educational buildings in North America.
The complex itself is a model of green building technology, with recycled materials and a
tree-filled atrium, and labs with state-of-the-art energy efficiency and heat recovery system. This signature
building is possible because of generous support from
the Government of Canada, Government of Manitoba, Richardson
Firm, Family and Foundation and other generous donors.
