Core Sunlighting System

Core Sunlighting System

In the spirit of sustainability and support of UBC’s own innovators, a sunlight collection system, created by UBC Physics Prof. Lorne Whitehead and licensed to Vancouver-based SunCentral Inc., is at the core of a $61.8 million makeover of the UBC Biological Sciences Complex. The collection system channels sunlight into powering three labs, with automatic adjustments depending on time of day and amount of light needed.
