Dal to rebuild agricultural campus building damaged by fire

August 1, 2018

Dalhousie University plans to rebuild the main building of its agricultural campus following a fire in June, reports CBC. Construction will cost between $12M and $25M. David Gray, Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, said that he does not yet know how much of the cost will be covered by insurance. CBC adds that faculty and students awaiting news about the fate of their research projects have not yet been granted access to the facility. Vasantha Rupasinghe, a professor with the faculty, told CBC that the damage could result in years’ worth of lost research. CBC
