Health Research Innovation Centre

Location: Calgary, AB

The Health Research Innovation Centre (HRIC) is a state-of-the-art medical research centre comprised of two buildings – the Lab building and the Teaching, Research and Wellness building (TRW).

Opening in phases from 2007 till 2009, the HRIC features wet and dry labs, the latest in medical technologies, and outpatient clinics projected to serve 150,000 patients each year.

The buildings are also home to several clinical and research support centres, including the Centre for Advanced Technologies in the Life Sciences, the Colon Cancer Screening Centre, the Calgary Centre for Health Research and the University of Calgary Medical Clinics.

Designed to support multidisciplinary approaches to health, the complex brings together the best minds in medical research, teaching and health care.

The design of the buildings has the ability to offer a number of retail and wellness services to take advantage of the anticipated traffic in the TRW without compromising teaching or research space.
