Dates of existence



The Centre for Building Studies (CBS) was established in January 1977 to serve the building industry through teaching, research, and development program. Then located at the corner of Guy and Ste-Catherine, it was officially opened by the Quebec Minister of Education Jacques-Yvan Morin on February 17, 1978. Dr. Paul Fazio, who created the CBS, was its director until 1997. In May 1997, the CBS and the Department of Civil Engineering were united in one academic and administrative unit called School of Building which was renamed the Department of Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering in November 1998. The Centre for Building Studies remains an active research centre within the Department.
