In 2020, McGill launched a $100-million building renovation program at Macdonald Campus, an unprecedented infrastructure investment for the campus, home to McGill’s Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
A total of 15 buildings will be renovated. Most of the planned renovations involve critical – and long-deferred – upgrades needed to bring the campus facilities up to modern building codes and standards. For a list of the major projects, see our map.
Some of the larger projects include:
- Raymond Building
- Deferred maintenance: Renovation of the roof, waterproofing and repairs of the foundations, replacement of the ventilation and air extraction systems, addition of fire sprinklers.
- Funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation: Renovation of lab space to create a level-3 confinement state-of-the-art research laboratory.
- Barton Building
- Deferred maintenance: Waterproofing and repairs of the foundations, replacement of the ventilation and air extraction systems.
- Raymond Greenhouse
- Demolition of the existing Raymond and Summerby greenhouses (and tunnel number 6) and construction of a new greenhouse and teaching pavilion, attached to the Raymond Building.
