Major renovation of Lyman Duff (new wing) floors 0-1-2 to start in February 2019

An extensive renovation of the basement, 1st and 2nd floors of the new wing of the Lyman Duff Medical Building is scheduled to start on Feb. 18, 2019. The project is expected to last two years.

The first phase of the project will consist of the complete demolition of the interior walls and ceilings on the three floors, and is expected to take a couple of months (planned completion by end of April 2019).

Once the demolition is completed, the team will be able to adjust the detailed plans for the new spaces and proceed with the call for tenders for the second phase.

The second phase of the project will include all needed architectural and structural work, and related electrical and mechanical systems replacement, to create a modern facility for pain research. The renovated space, which will include labs and administrative spaces, will become a central hub for the Alan Edwards Centre for Research on Pain, including Canada Excellence Research Chair Luda Diatchenko and her team. This phase is expected to start in August 2019, for a planned completion by February 2021.

As the work will be confined to the basement, 1st and 2nd floors, which are mostly unoccupied at the moment, we do not expect this project to be significantly disruptive to most occupants of the Lyman Duff Building. As for the few occupied spaces on those floors, we are working with the users to arrange for alternative spaces. Furthermore, the noisier work will be conducted outside regular work hours.

If you have questions or comments, do not hesitate to communicate with the Faculty of Medicine’s Buildings Office at [at], who will connect with us.

We thank you for your continued patience and understanding throughout these busy few years of infrastructure renewal at McGill.
