These moves will accommodate significant projects that are set to being this spring, aimed at accommodating growth and enhancing the student experience. Projects include:
- The 10,330 square-foot academic training addition at Welland will be constructed to the north side of the existing athletic centre, and will include an academic fitness lab and flexible space that can ultimately be used as a second gymnasium.
- A 37,000 square-foot cafeteria and Simcoe building expansion at Welland. This project, situated at the north end of the Simcoe Building, will include a new 525-seat cafeteria, student activity centre, kitchen and server, an expanded prayer room along with renovations to accommodate justice studies programs, including demonstration labs and classrooms.
- The 20,000 square-foot fitness centre and classroom project at Niagara-on-the-Lake includes an expansion to the east side of the campus to replace the existing fitness centre while adding change rooms, an exercise studio, offices, reception and six new 40-seat classrooms.
- The first phase of student services renovations, learning commons and cafeteria project at Niagara-on-the-Lake will include the relocation of the info centre, registrar’s office, counselling and health services on the main floor, and the construction of a new student commons, redesigned cafeteria, and meeting rooms on the lower level.
