The University of Windsor is set to move onto phase two of five renovation phases on renovations of the Biology building.

Phase one was approved by the Board of Governors in May 2013 with a total cost of $ 1.4m. Construction began in June 2013 and wrapped up this month. Work completed included asbestos fire-proofing removal and re-spray, HVAC upgrades, fume hood upgrades,lighting and ceilings in the basement floor and the sub-basement.

The next phase calls for completion of all floor areas including Labs, offices on the fiorst floor as well as the second floor corridor and piping insulation in the basement.

The scope of work for all phases will consist of the removal of existing ceilings, lighting and HVAC air distribution equipment and installing new air distribution equipment, HVAC controls, lighting, ceilings and painting. In addition, the project will include the cleaning, repair, upgrade and / or replacement of approximately 31 fume hoods. The university also says that consideration will be given to new flooring, paint, and some aesthetic improvements based on the availability of other funding sources.

Phase two is estimated at $1,500,000. Pending Board approval on Wednesday, the next step will be to proceed with working drawings and tender documents.
