Summer 2017 Reno Hotspots

Contractor Parking 2017 

Lecture Theatre renovation

Location: B Building, Level 1, Abbotsford Campus

Expected duration: April to August, 2017

B101 is getting a reno! This project will update acoustics, lighting, seating and décor and expand the entry foyer to function as a flexible informal learning space and reception space when required. Also key to this project is the conversion of the existing stepped floor to a continuous and gently sloped floor to provide universal access to the seating and stage.


Library renovation

Location: G Building, Level 1, Abbotsford Campus

Expected duration: April to August, 2017

Our campus hub – the library – will undergo an awesome transformation this summer! To support the learning needs of all members of the UFV community, this renovation will create pockets of informal and flexible learning spaces, more group study rooms, and the implementation of an experiential learning space (a.k.a. maker space).


Science Laboratory Upgrades

Expected duration: April to August 2017

  • Improved air quality and temperature controls
  • LED lighting
  • Lighting and equipment controls
