Construction Projects

A total of 15 buildings will be renovated to implement critical – and long-deferred – upgrades needed to bring the campus facilities up to modern building codes and standards.

Completed Projects

Campus Energy Project

The Macdonald Campus Power House* integrates current and new energy technologies.  Our goal is to achieve 90% renewable energy, to reduce CO2 emissions and substantially lower operating costs.

*This project was awarded an Honourable Mention in the 2018 Concours Énergia (Catégorie — Bâtiment existant — Secteur institutionnel) by the Association Québecoise pour la Maitrise de l'Énergie.


Farm Road Project

Thanks to a generous donation by the Class of 1963 the farm road entrances to Macdonald are spruced up by newly planted trees and beautiful landmark boulders.
