Pictou Campus | July 2023

A construction site shows a multilevel building under construction.

The student housing construction site at Pictou Campus has made great progress throughout July, marking off significant updates as crews work towards the next phase of work.

The pedway will soon connect the student housing to Pictou Campus.

The latest updates:

  • Drywall in shower cavities for mech installation has began
  • Electricians are currently installing clips prior to fireproofing
  • The second floor tracks are underway and third floor tracks will begin when fireproofing starts
  • The second floor windows are now complete, moving to south elevation next
  • Vent lines on the fourth floor are being installed
  • The curtain wall and water lines are expected to begin in the next few weeks
  • The vapour barriers are on schedule to finish this week
  • Insulation for the building is expected to arrive during the first week of August
