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 - June 19, 2018
Here is your Silver King Campus Renewal Project update. This is what’s is happening over the next few days in the three main areas of the project:
Student Commons Building
Drywall and glass orders will be delivered this week and will be confined to the job site area; there will not be any disruption to staff and students during deliveries. Drywall, curtain wall, and windows will be ongoing all week. Painting of the exterior structural steel is moving along nicely and should be completed by June 19. The electrical rough-in is expected to be completed by the end of next week. The civil service tie-ins are ongoing and are expected to be complete by the end of the month. Masonry installation will begin this week and will be ongoing all month. There are no major shut-downs happening this week around the construction site, but please be cautious around this area. The front entrance to the Administration Building remains open with a gravel path constructed around the construction site.
Municipal service tie-ins did not occur last week due to a delay in the shipment of materials. As soon as the materials arrive on site (expected for this week), construction crews will be connecting the municipal services which will required the alley to be closed all week. Please do not use the alley and obey all signage and flagging personnel while this work is completed. The lower brick detail has been completed and the cladding will be connected this week. Most of the drywall has been installed and is scheduled to be completed next week. Mudding and taping will also start next week. The parapet around the exterior is complete. Canopy roofing is ready to go and should be completed in one week. Electrical rough-in & interior plywood installation finished last week. HVAC rough-in will be completed this week. Painting of the beams and plywood is ongoing and should also finish up this week. Glass and skylights are scheduled to be installed Tuesday-Friday this week.
North & South Trades Building
There are no new updates for the North and South Trade buildings. Both buildings are completely open to faculty and students. There are a few minor deficiencies being finalized between classes, in the evenings, or on the weekends.
Thanks again for your time and your continued patience with this project as we proceed towards a new era of learning at the Silver King Campus. If you have any concerns or questions about the above information please contact Communications Coordinator Bob Hall.
