TRU re-opens Old Main building after $20.2-million redesign

June 17, 2014

Thompson Rivers University officially re-opened its newly renovated Old Main building, home to its law school, on Friday. The building was redesigned to include over 4000 square feet of learning space and includes “green” features such as energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, solar energy collectors, and high-value insulation. The new learning space was also built from locally harvested, beetle-killed pine. The province contributed $7.4 million to the $20.2 million project. “We are proud to be a partner in Thompson Rivers University’s expansion and revitalization of the Old Main building that will be home to the province’s newest law school. Students who choose Thompson Rivers University are getting the benefit of high-quality education in an outstanding venue,” said BC Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk. BC News Release
