General note

“The Institute is situated on University Street, Montreal, on the grounds of McGill University, and abuts on the University Campus. The exterior is of limestone. The main structure consists of two stories within one order of piers, the substructure consisting of a main floor and a high basement. Provision is made for an additional wing at the north-west end corresponding to that at the south-east end and an attic story. The scale of the adjoining buildings on the University Campus has been carefully maintained. The planning is on the unit principle and the utmost advantage is taken of the north-east exposure for laboratory lighting by large windows. The design is thus thoroughly modern in its general realism. The detail is sparing and of the free Anglo-Classic school. “ --“The Pulp and Paper Research Institute-Montreal. Messrs. Nobbs & Hyde, -- F.F.R.I.B.A.,Architects,” JRAIC 7 (January 1930) : 6. --
