It’s not just the work of Mother Nature that’s responsible for bringing the university landscape to life. A dedicated staff of 35 gardeners, arborists and horticulturists, divided into five crews, work year-round to maintain the university’s 172 hectares of varied landscapes. It’s a responsibility that requires detailed preparation, intense physical work, and the ability to adapt and plan for the changing seasons and climate.
The new space is needed as a result of significant growth within Financial Operations, brought about by the Procurement Modernization initiative and the successful development of a new Service Delivery Model for UBC.
As part of UBC’s commitment to creating a safe, secure and resilient environment for our students, faculty and staff, Risk Management Services (RMS) will be joining with Campus Security to create a new department of Safety & Risk Services (SRS) for the Vancouver campus.
