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 23, 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 was on hold for the later part of last week while the underground kitchen services were being finalized. The kitchen slab rebar will be tied this week and the slab on ground will be poured for this final area on Friday. Steel stud work for the exterior as well as the interior will continue throughout this week where possible. Roofing will also continue this week and has been progressing nicely with the good weather. The mechanical room pads were poured last week, and crews will be loading equipment up to the mezzanine today (Monday). The roadways might be temporarily blocked while they load the equipment, please be cautions in this area and obey all flagging personnel and signage. 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 will be continuing with the interior framing of the Carpentry Building this week, as well as, the mezzanine. Mechanical and electrical services will also start to be installed this week. The first set of footing holes have been dug for the canopy. Footing boxes will be constructed today (Monday) and the rebar will be tied on Tuesday. The crews are hoping to pour the concrete for the footings in the latter half of this week. As always, please obey all signage 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.
