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 - February 12, 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:
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.
Student Commons Building
The front entrance to the Administration Building is open with a new gravel path constructed 30 feet north of the old path, around the construction site. A second truck load of steel was delivered at the end of last week, and the steel workers continued their work over the weekend. They will be bolting up the structural steel and installing the decking all this week. The SW quadrant is fully erected, and the steel work is approximately 30 per cent complete. There will be a third truck delivering the ballast and the remaining steel; however, the delivery date is still being finalized. The crane will be moving to the Carpentry area on Tuesday morning and there will not be any major hazards to watch out for in the Student Commons site area. Please obey all signage in the area.
A crane will be on the Carpentry site Tuesday morning to lift beams into place, the lane will be closed to accommodate the Glulam beam installation. Foot traffic will be re-routed between the courtyard of North Trades and South Trades, please follow the detour signage and obey all flagging personnel. All the walls of the building are now standing except one which will be installed this week. Please keep an eye out for machinery at all times.
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.
