Description

CIQS members are invited to join us on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at the University of Calgary to learn more about the MacKimmie Complex and Professional Faculties Building Redevelopment Project.

MacKimmie Complex and Professional Faculties Building Redevelopment Project

The MacKimmie Complex and Professional Faculties Building Redevelopment Project is a multi-year, multi-phase project to address deferred maintenance, enhance pedagogical and administrative environments, accommodate growth, and strengthen the sense of place and community in the heart of the University of Calgary’s main campus.

The completed project provides support for 500 new Full-Load Equivalent students (FLEs) through the constructing of a re-energized central hub of new classrooms, centralized undergraduate and graduate student services, new formal and informal student study space, and expanded academic space.

Initial funding to begin design and planning for the project was announced by the Alberta government in April, 2016. On March 23, 2017, the province announced an additional $262.8M over the next four years for the MacKimmie Complex and Professional Faculties Building Redevelopment.

Revitalizing of Swann Mall will begin early May. This is a continuation of work that began in the summer of 2018. The south side of Swann Mall will reopen and landscaping work will take place this summer.

Admission is free, but space is limited (CIQS members only)

NOTE: Tour attendees should arrive at office (MT102). Full PPE will be provided (hardhat, safety boots, safety glasses, high visibility vests, gloves) All attendees must be wearing long pants. Host will arrange for safety orientations and forms signing.
