Goodes Hall expansion takes shape
Excavators and heavy trucks have made steady progress since excavation work began in July on the expansion of Goodes Hall, home to Queen’s School of Business. Highlights of the 75,000-square-foot wing include six classrooms with the latest teaching technologies, more offices and student common areas, two new research centres, and LEED-certified design features.
“The excavation phase of the project is on schedule and will be complete by the end of October,” says Steve Millan, the School’s Executive Director of Finance and Administration and Chair of the QSB Building Committee.
The new wing is being built on the west side of Goodes Hall, with five levels, including underground parking that will link to the new underground lot beside Tindall Field.
Many of the trees along the side of Goodes Hall were relocated to make way for the safety fencing surrounding the construction site, formerly a surface parking lot, at the corner of Union Street.
The new wing is slated to open on schedule in December 2011.
