The UBC Biodiversity Research Centre is a 124,000 sq. ft. building housing wet and dry laboratories, collections, exhibits and office space.

In addition to this research function, the Centre houses six of the University's most important scientific collections.

Structurally, RJC needed to account for The Beaty Biodiversity Museum requirements for large exhibit display space to showcase UBC's vast collection of specimens, as well as open labs and public lecture space.

Additionally, four interdisciplinary research groups representing a variety of UBC departments call the Biodiversity Centre home.

The Centre is functionally integrated with the Aquatic Ecosystems Research Laboratory building as well as with the existing Biosciences and Food, Nutrition, and Health buildings.
