Welcome to a new academic year at Memorial! Also, welcome to year three of the Core Science Facility build!
With the building exterior now substantially complete, it may appear construction activity is subsiding; however, activity is now actually increasing. Trades people have shifted attention to the interior finishes of this spectacular 480,000 square foot facility. Approximately 300 trades people work daily to install interior finishes and complete the complex mechanical and electrical systems of the facility. Work on the exterior landscaping also continues around the building perimeter, including work that integrates the grounds between the Core Science Facility and the University Centre.
You may also notice a smaller project, associated with the Core Science Facility construction, has now commenced within the University Centre. This University Centre renovations project will realign the space on the third floor to allow uninterrupted travel to and from the University Centre from the Core Science building and on to other campus buildings. This project will be ongoing throughout the fall 2019 semester. We realize the minor inconveniences this project may cause and we thank you for your patience and attention in this area.
We invite you to check back here often to view our Core Science Facility news and updated progress photos. Your feedback and comments are always welcome.
The development of our new Core Science Facility at Memorial University is the cornerstone of our infrastructure renewal plan and vital for our continued success. Once complete, the facility will enhance our ability to recruit and retain world-class faculty and students, as well as enhance our research capabilities.
We thank everyone for your continued cooperation and attention to this active construction project. When in the area, please pay extra attention to construction activity and surroundings. Keeping everyone safe is our greatest priority.
