Through the winds, snow storms and low temperatures, winter construction continues on our Core Science Facility.
With the exterior envelope progressing around the building footprint, there is a bee-hive of activity happening within the enclosed, and fortunately heated, section “Pavilion C”. On an average winter’s day, well over 200 tradespeople report to the Core Science Facility work site, carrying out a wide variety of trade works ranging from plumbing, to masonry, to plastering and painting.
As the building envelope nears completion and temperatures slowly begin to rise, we will start to see more activity around the perimeter of the building with site finishes and landscaping being carried out this year.
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.
