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 - July 30, 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
The drywall crews are finishing up a few details while the mudding, tapping and painting will continue throughout this week. The floors will be prepped for grinding and the T-bar ceiling installed all week as well. The curtain wall and cladding are scheduled to finish up this week, as well as, the sprinkler system. Civil service tie-in will be ongoing this week and should be completed by the end of the week. Masonry completed the majority of their work last week and might have a few details to work on this week. Crews will start applying the fire stop smoke steal finish this week. 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.
The air hydronics system was tested last week in the Carpentry Building with no major concerns. Mudding, taping, prime and first coat of paint have been completed; the final coat of paint is being applied to the building this week. With the flooring is now installed and the tiling complete, the millwork installation can continue through this week. The cladding system also finished last week. Mechanical and electrical systems will be finishing over the next three weeks. Interiors doors and hardware will start mid-August. Rough grading around the building started on Friday and will continue all week. The exterior concrete sidewalk prep work will start this week and the pour will happen next week. Landscape, hard and softscape, will happen after the concrete pour. The alley will continue to be closed for another week for civil service tie-ins. Please do not use the alley and obey all signage and flagging personnel.
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.
The Carpentry Building is coming together quickly as the Fall Semester approaches.
