Construction is about to get underway on the University of Windsor Law Building transformation now that General Contractors have been selected.

The University says that following a thorough procurement process, the joint venture of EllisDon Corporation and Fortis Construction Group has been selected to lead the construction of the Transforming Windsor Law building project.

The contractors are currently the General Contractor for the Lancer Centre.

“We look forward to working with them,” says Windsor Law Dean Christopher Waters. “They are mobilizing this month for a January 2021 start to construction.”

This fall, Law’s temporary quarters across campus were completed to host faculty, staff and students once it is safe to return to the University. There has been a roughly 15% increase in the project budget (primarily due to the impact of COVID-19), which has been approved by the University’s Board of Governors.

Currently sitting around $5.3 million, Windsor Law’s fundraising target of $6 million remains an achievable goal, despite the pandemic.
