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 - April 16, 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 steel stud work will continue throughout this week with good progress being seen over the last week. The roofers are hoping to start on the roof this week but will be depending on good weather. The mechanical room pads have been built and crews are expecting to pour the concrete this week. After the concrete cures, the equipment can be installed in the mechanical room. A conveyor system will be used to pour the concrete on the mezzanine; the upper parking lot by the bus stop will be used during this period. Roofing materials will be delivered during the week but should not impact students. Monday (tentatively) crews are hoping to strip off the shores for the mezzanine as long as the concrete passes all applicable tests. The front entrance to the Administration Building remains open with a gravel path constructed 30 feet north of the old path, around the construction site.
Red Dog Carpentry ordered lumber on Friday last week and starting to frame the interior partition walls. They will also be working on the mezzanine this week. Footing holes for the canopy pads will be excavated on Tuesday or Wednesday. Red Dog will put in footing boxes towards the end of the week and crews will be in the following week to tie the cages. As always, please obey all signage and flagging personnel around the construction site.
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.
