Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Phase 1D Research Building

Toronto, ON

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

TreanorHL, KPMB Architects, and Affiliated Engineers Inc. designed the redevelopment of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Queen Street Campus.

As the leading mental health and addiction research facility in Canada, the design of the research building strengthens CAMH’s research vision, and its commitment to client care, health promotion, education, research, and the stigma associated with addiction and mental health.

As part of the last phase of redevelopment at CAMH, the Research Building consists of administrative services, wet laboratory research (brain sciences laboratories, core laboratories), dry laboratories, and computational research (brain sciences laboratories, neuroinformatics, Institute for Mental Health Policy Research), clinical research and specialty laboratories (participants’ area, smoking laboratory, bar lab, driving simulator), pre-clinical facilities (holding, testing, lab, and surgical facilities), research imaging centre and imaging research group (MRI, PET, Animal PET, Radiochemistry, and Cyclotron), support services, building amenity, and campus-wide shareable spaces (auditorium, classrooms and meeting rooms for knowledge exchange, collaborative workspaces, occupational health, and wellness centre, retail food services, event space). Unique characteristics include:

  • healthcare and research facility
  • focus on addiction and mental health services
  • welcoming and healing environment
  • equal services and research laboratories as the CAMH Research Building project
