July 27, 2021
The University of Manitoba will be upgrading its Fort Garry Campus’ Central Energy Plant and its Max Bell Centre building. The projects will improve the energy efficiency of the 41 major buildings on the campus while reducing the university’s greenhouse-gas emissions. The projects are part of a recent $22M investment made by the Government of Canada and Government of Manitoba through the Community, Culture, and Recreation Infrastructure Stream and the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. “We thank the governments of Canada and Manitoba for their support of UM’s sustainability goals,” said UManitoba President Dr Michael Benarroch. “This investment in upgrades to our Central Energy Plant and Max Bell Centre support the efficiency and resiliency of our infrastructure, and deliver social and environmental benefits to our community.” UManitoba (MB)
