CAWP is located on the University of British Columbia main (Point Grey) campus at:

Suite 2900
Forest Sciences Centre
2424 Main Mall
University of British Columbia
Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z4

CAWP occupies the eastern portion of the Forest Sciences Centre complex; it is a two-storey U-shaped building with a gated courtyard that faces onto East Mall. The closest public parking is across East Mall off Agronomy Road in the C2 lot, east of CAWP. There is another surface parking lot (Lot B4) on the west side of the Forest Sciences Building, accessible from Agronomy Road.  Both of these lots fill up quickly when classes are in session (Jan to April and September to December). If you are arriving after 9am you may need to go to the Thunderbird Parkade, which is just east of the C2 lot (access it by driving east on Agronomy Road and making two rights).

The main entrance to CAWP is on Thunderbird Crescent on the south side of the building. Take the elevator or stairs to the second floor to reach Reception. For deliveries of lumber, machinery or larger items to our lab, trucks should enter the courtyard from Agronomy Road on the north side (click map below for larger image).
