P+A has played a major role in UBC’s conversion from a commuter campus to a complete community. The firm has been the lead public realm consultant for dozens of projects within the academic core and new mixed-use campus communities over the past 15 years.
Our involvement has included a primary role in the formulation of the planning structure and landscape plans for the new neighborhoods, the retail village and numerous individual development sites. P+A helped lead the campus community consultation process while working closely with UBC Properties Trust, Campus and Community Planning, other consultants and the local community. P+A has completed detailed plans for the public realm including plazas, courts, greenways and streetscape treatments. Sustainable design has been a primary focus especially in the area of rainwater management.
