The Science Complex on the Loyola Campus is on schedule, and is slated
to open in September 2003.
At the Sir George Williams Campus downtown, excavation has been going
on all summer for the Integrated Engineering, Computer Science and Visual
Arts Complex, on Ste. Catherine St. between Guy and Mackay Sts.
The design phase is coming to a satisfactory end for the new quarters
of the John Molson School of Business, on Guy St. between Ste. Catherine
and de Maisonneuve Blvd. Excavation is expected to start in 2003.
J.W. McConnell Building (LB): Tim Hortons is being renovated
by the new food services provider, Chartwells. The copy centre that was
located on the main floor of the Hall Building has moved to the McConnell
Building main floor. This brings printing and copying together in proximity
to the Bookstore and R. Howard Webster Library. A quick food service is
available on the terrace until the snow flies.
Hall Building (HB): The fourth-floor Tim Hortons counter
has been revamped. The food court on the mezzanine and the Concordia Student
Union multi-cultural kitchen are under negotiation, and will stay as they
are for now.
New classrooms: During this construction period, Concordia continues
to rely on some rented space on the downtown campus. Rooms will be rented
on the two upper floors of the new Jean Coutu building (CL) at the corner
of Ste. Catherine and St. Mathieu Sts. Continuing Education will occupy
the third floor, and Registrars will use the second floor for unassigned
Dean of Students (AD): At Loyola, the most important summer renovation
is the consolidation of the Dean of Students Office. These renovations
will offer centralized, improved facilities for students by bringing together
the Dean of Students, Advocacy and Support Services, Campus Ministry,
Health Services, and Counselling and Development on the ground floor of
the Administration (AD) Building. A new Instructional and Information
Technology Services (IITS) centralized service counter will be available
in the Central Building.
Residence changes: The common rooms and kitchen of the student
residence on the Loyola Campus have been renovated.
Campus Centre: The food services space at Loyola renovated by
the new provider, Chartwells, will be inaugurated on Sept. 16.
