An off-grid scientific facility for Environment and Climate Change Canada, this migration monitoring station is part of a system of stations used to capture, measure, band, and release migratory birds. Constructed of cross-laminated timber panels, the structure was erected in one day. Traditional wood window and door construction was also employed, complementing the state-of-the-art CLT fabrication.

The Ottawa Biotechnology Incubation Centre (OBIC) was a non-profit organization that provided commercialization support to start-up biotechnology companies. OBIC Park is located in the Ottawa Life Sciences Technology Park.
OBIC Park was designed to contain ten laboratory/office suites. They were to be leased to start-up companies for up to three-year terms. These companies were to be focused on the development of biotechnological innovations derived from medical research that might ultimately lead to new products for human health and medical care.

WMTA provide laboratory planning services for this project by Moriyama Teshima Architects at the University of Toronto Scarborough campus.
The Science Research Building consists of three floors of advanced research laboratories designed with long-term flexibility as a priority. All spaces are capable of easily accommodating the most demanding of serviced research laboratories, the wet chemistry lab; however, many of the initial uses are for biology, psychology, and other less service-intensive uses.
