The University is in the second phase of its planning process to determine required building facilities for the next five to 10 years. In November 2006, the Board of Governors supported continuing with the second phase in the Facilities Strategy process which includes determining:

  1. The precise size, configuration and location of new building projects
  2. The options for renovating existing space
  3. The level of philanthropic support for the capital program
  4. The overall cost of the facilities strategy considering both (a) closing Traill College entirely and (b) repurposing Traill College as a primarily graduate studies college

As part of phase two of the Facilities Renewal strategy, the IBI Group, an engineering and architectural planning firm, has completed an extensive consultation process and background analysis of Trent’s existing facilities. The IBI Group will present their findings at two Open House Information Sessions:

Tuesday, February 13 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
OC211 (old Indigenous Studies Lounge).
OR
Thursday, February 15 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
OC211 (old Indigenous Studies Lounge).

A draft report will be presented to the Board’s Finance and Property committee in March and April, with a final report presented at the April Board of Governors meeting.
Questions, concerns and opinions about the Facilities Renewal project can be forwarded to mhendriks@trentu.ca with the subject heading “Facilities Strategy.”
