$5 million for Laurentian architecture school

September 21, 2012

The federal government announced Friday a $5-million contribution to the construction of Laurentian University's architecture school. The funding will enable Laurentian to build a new 65,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that will feature a variety of classrooms, lecture and exhibition halls, offices, and specialized educational spaces such as labs, studios, and workshops. The investment will also help the institution renovate 2 existing facilities to accommodate its space requirements. The school will be located at the current Market Square location in downtown Sudbury. Students will start attending classes there in fall 2013. By 2018, the school will accommodate about 400 students, as well as 40 faculty and staff members. FedNor News Release | CBC
