BUILDING: Education Building

PROJECT TITLE & NUMBER: 11-299 – Renovation of building envelope

DESCRIPTION: Repairs to roofs, masonry walls, windows, exterior terrace, foundation and parking garage (2018-2021)

Phase 2 of Education Building envelope renovation work to start in June 2019

The second phase of the exterior renovation work that started last year on the Education Building is scheduled to begin on June 10, 2019.

This phase will include structural work on the exterior terrace, which will be demolished, rebuilt and waterproofed. The project also includes new landscaping on and around the terrace and the conversion of the emergency exit on Peel St. into a regular entrance.

The electrical room in the basement (next to the parking garage) will also be demolished and rebuilt (on the same level but a little more to the north) as the concrete structure that covers it has been damaged by water infiltration over time.

There will be no access to the terrace for the duration of this phase, which is scheduled to be completed by the summer of 2020.

As with the work that was done on the roofs and the façades last year, access to the building (including for reduced-mobility users) will be maintained at all times.

The noisier work or work that could create odours in the building will be performed before 8 a.m. or after 9:30 p.m. during the week or on weekends.
