University of the Fraser Valley and the UFV Student Union Society are working together to realize a long-term dream of opening a Student Union Building on the Abbotsford campus.
The $15-million project will be financed on a cost-shared basis, with UFV students providing $10 million of the funding through a $35 per semester fee that was approved in a referendum in 2008. The university will provide $5 million of the funding.
The architects for the project are Chernoff Thompson, and the building contractor is Mierau Contractors. Construction started Sept 16, 2013.
Phase one of the building, to be completed by early 2015, will be 46,700 square feet and three storeys.
It will house the Student Union Society, Student Life, Campus Card office, the Aboriginal Resource Centre, and a large multi-purpose hall on the first floor; the CIVL student radio station, the Cascade student newspaper, Aftermath, and more SUS services on the second floor; and the Career Centre, Alumni Engagement, Supported Learning Groups, and a variety of student meeting and study rooms on the third floor.
