AB provides additional funding for restoration projects

July 13, 2020

The Government of Alberta has announced an additional $98M in funding for campus restoration projects at several postsecondary institutions, building on the $118.5M budgeted for maintenance and renewal. AB is providing an additional $16M in funding for the University of Alberta to engage in campus restoration projects, such as the renewal and replacement of mechanical and electrical systems in the Brain and Aging Research Building and the installation of a new piping system in the Tory Building. The University of Lethbridge has also received $20M to upgrade its district heating and cooling centre, which first opened in 1971. “This is spending that will benefit students, help control the cost of future maintenance to the university,” said Lethbridge-East MLA Nathan Neudorf, “and will also help the community by ensuring that well-calculated and focused projects are creating jobs right here in Lethbridge.” AB | Lethbridge Herald (AB)
