The Provincial Government announced approval for $14.2 million in funding to go towards the Silver King Campus renovation and revitalization. The funding will now allow the $18.9 million project to proceed.
The formal ground breaking will take place this spring for the renewal, replacement and demoition of existing buildings on the Nelson-based campus. The capital project will create an estimated 84 direct and 56 indirect jobs in our region. Construction is expected to be completed in the fall of 2017.
The Silver King Campus first opened in 1964 as the British Columbia Vocational School. This is the first major renovation to the facility since it opened more than 50 years ago.
