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 - September 5, 2017
Our weekly Silver King Campus Renewal Project updates continue as steady work plays out in several different areas. Here’s what is in store the next few days in the three main areas of the project:
North Trades nearing completion.
The classroom and automotive area are completed with minor deficiencies being done between classes and on evenings and weekends. The main corridor will be partially ribboned off this week for the installation of the light fixtures. Please be cautious when in this area and obey all signage. The electrical shop is still under full construction, please no students or faculty in this area for this week.
South Trades ready, but minor details ongoing.
The temporary hoarding wall has been taken down and there is full access to both sides of the building for staff and students. There are minor details being finished up; however, the construction crew will be working between classes and in the evenings and weekends so as not to disturb the students and faculty.
Formwork on Student Commons and prep work for Carpentry.
Subcontractors will start work on the formwork for the new Student Commons Building on Tuesday and will be ongoing this week. The area is fenced off and the front parking lot and main entrance to the Administration/Classroom block will not be accessible. Please find other available parking elsewhere on campus and use the rear doors (or North entrance) to enter the building. Striping of the site and excavation work will continue on the new Carpentry Building, please be cautious while walking around these areas and obey all signage.
Work around the Classroom Block is nearing completion and the continued work on the storm sewer project continues behind the building. Please continue to heed all warnings on signs and help ensure the crews getting the work done are able to focus on the task at hand.
Construction crews are working hard to put the final preparations on both the North Trades and South Trades buildings at the Silver King Campus.
As this project heads towards the finish line, please remember that there may be unexpected inconveniences that occur. Make sure you obey all signs and use common sense when near any construction activity to ensure the safety of all involved.
Watch for more to come about this exciting renewal of our Silver King Campus in Rosemont.
