Construction of a facility that will become the new main entrance to Humber College’s north campus (Etobicoke) in Toronto is officially underway.

The Learning Resource Commons will be a six-storey, 260,000 sq. ft. academic support and student services facility. The LEED silver building will feature a new library, central hub, study and gallery spaces, and space for the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences and college administration.

The $84.2 million contract is being carried out through a joint venture between PCL Constructors Canada Inc. (developer and constructor), B+H Architects (lead architects) and TD Securities Debt Capital Markets (financial advisors).

Up to 150 workers will be on-site during the busiest construction periods. The Learning Resource Commons is scheduled for completion by the spring of 2015.
