Thompson Rivers University has unveiled plans for the renovation of the Old Main building on its campus in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.

The refurbishment, which will include 3,700m² of new learning space, was designed by architectural firms Diamond and Schmitt Architects, and Stantec.

The building will house the university’s faculty of law, and common space for students.

The design features of the building include an undulating roofline that reflects the Kamloops horizon.

The building will be constructed using sustainable pine beetle kill wood that will be harvested locally.

The total cost of the project is estimated at $20.5m with 50% of the amount earmarked for the shell and the remaining amount allocated for interior renovation.

Work on the shell is expected to be complete by June 2012.
