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 25, 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 tops and installation are on schedule and should be complete by the end of this week. Sprinkler rough-in will be starting at the end of this week. Civil service tie-in is on schedule and should be finalized by the end of this week. Plumbing rough-in is finished and they are now working on domestic water valves and hot/cold water pumps. The electrical rough-in is in the final stages with the trades working on revisions. Masonry prep is complete, they will start their installation this week. An environmentally friendly spray foam was applied to the mechanical room over this last weekend. Ceiling beams are being varnished, the painting of the exterior structural steel is complete which allows the glazers to start their work. Curtain wall and windows are ongoing. 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 roofers have finished the membrane on the canopy, the skylight and mechanical cut-outs are the only remaining items on the roof. Crews will be working on the curtain wall and skylight detail this week. The loose-skin outer material of the building is 75% completed. Cladding will begin after and will require a couple of weeks to finish. Drywall is ongoing; mudding and taping will occur after. HVAC rough-in is complete and the electrical rough-in is in the final stages. The interior plywood should be complete by this week. The civil service tie-in is on standby, if they are able to work on it this week, the alley will be closed. Please do not use the alley in this case 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.
