Renovation and Infrastructure Cost Estimates

Applicants to all Canada Foundation for Innovation funding opportunities must request for a Renovation & Infrastructure Cost Estimate (RICE) prior to submitting their application to the IPO internal peer review. RICE requests are not required for off-campus (i.e. hospital site) proposals.

UBC Facilities Planning will work with you to request all necessary approvals to ensure the successful installation or construction of your CFI-funded facility or equipment. 

Steps to receive a Renovation & Infrastructure Cost Estimate (RICE) for CFI Applications

Follow this process to receive your Renovation and Infrastructure Cost Estimate (RICE) in time for your internal peer review. The deadline to submit your RICE Request Form (step 2) is based on the complexity of the work required, and is categorized into renovation tiers (see step 1).
