UBC Undergraduate Research

Study of UBC’s current snow removal practices, and their possible effects Choi, Kathryn; Delumeau, Solène; Liang, Khris; Xu, Lisa

Abstract

This report details our team project in collaboration with UBC Building Operations and the SEEDS Program, from September 2019 to April 2020. Our project partners have expressed their desire to examine some ways to improve UBC’s current methods of dealing with the snow seasons, particularly in the realm of reducing negative environmental impacts of snow and ice removal. The main aim of this project was to recommend changes in UBC’s current snow removal practices by observing and documenting their existing protocols, and then exploring alternative methods that are used in other communities.
