The Seneca College King Campus expansion project involves the design and construction of new academic and extracurricular facilities that will allow Seneca to increase the range of programs offered and provide space for an additional 1,450 students. Once complete, Seneca’s King Campus will provide teaching and learning opportunities for more than 5,000 full-time students.
It will include approximately 25 new classrooms, computer labs and specialty labs for training health-care practitioners, a library, learning commons and student study space. It will also house a new student area with a multi-purpose athletic and recreation space, gymnasium, fitness centre; informal study areas and event spaces.
Seneca’s King Campus is currently home to approximately 3,500 full-time students. Once this 200,000 sq. ft. expansion is complete, the King Campus will provide teaching and learning opportunities for approximately 5,000 full-time students.
It will include approximately 25 new classrooms; computer labs and specialty labs for training health-care practitioners; a library; learning commons and; student study space. It will also house a new student area with a multi-purpose athletic and recreation space, gymnasium, fitness centre; informal study areas and event spaces.
The value of the contract with EllisDon Corporation is $70.9 million.
Funding for construction of the facility is being provided by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development, with additional funding from Seneca College, the Seneca Student Federation and the Student Athletics Association.
Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development are working with Seneca College to procure and deliver the King Campus Expansion project. After an extensive evaluation process that began with request for proposals in 2014, EllisDon Corporation was selected to design, build and finance the new facility.
Construction began in November 2016 and substantial completion is expected in spring 2018. The College will then require time to fit-up the building (move in furnishings, equipment, etc.)
This is the date at which the facility is ready for use in accordance with the contractual requirements.
The day-to-day operations of the College will not be impacted by construction. Seneca College will continue to undertake its regular activities during this time and will update students and employees of any construction impacts on an as-needed basis.
The new building will be built to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification, with a focus on healthy indoor environments, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and efficient use of energy, water and other resources.
