About the Project
In November 2015, Selkirk College got the green light for renewal of its 50-year-old trades training facility. With $14.2 million in funding from the Provincial Government, aiming to invest in training facilities and equipment, the college forged ahead with the planned $18.9 million renewal.
Most of the trades training programs offered by Selkirk College are delivered at the Silver King Campus. The College serves over 10,000 students annually with about 500 trades seats at the Silver King Campus.
Project Update - March 12, 2018
Here is your Silver King Campus Renewal Project update. This is what’s is happening over the next few days in the three main areas of the project:
Student Commons Building
The steel erection is now complete, with the exception of the stairs, which will be installed in the next few weeks along with the brick ledger. The first load of GLT Panels will be arriving on campus this morning. Workers may need to unload the panels by the front of the site gate, impeding traffic. In this case there will be someone directing pedestrians, please be cautious in this area and obey all personnel. GLT panels will be installed all week and the second (and final) load will be delivered on Friday (March 16), where traffic might also be diverted during the delivery. The front entrance to the Administration Building remains open with a gravel path constructed 30 feet north of the old path, around the construction site.
On Monday (March 12), a 53 foot GLT Canopy Panel will be delivered to the site and will be unloading in the alley. The roadway will be closed during this time. McNally will also be on site Monday to dig up a gas line in the alley for capping and then will excavate the Carpentry building for the mechanical and electrical services for the rest of the week. Heritage roofing will be installing the membrane on the roof this week. The alley might be closed intermittently throughout the week but only for short periods of time. As always, please obey all signage and flagging personnel around the construction site.
North & South Trades Building
There are no new updates for the North and South Trade buildings. Both buildings are completely open to faculty and students. There are a few minor deficiencies being finalized between classes, in the evenings, or on the weekends.
Thanks again for your time and your continued patience with this project as we proceed towards a new era of learning at the Silver King Campus. If you have any concerns or questions about the above information please contact Communications Coordinator Bob Hall.
Watch for more to come about this exciting renewal of our Silver King Campus in Rosemont.
