UoGuelph begins Axelrod Building renovation

November 27, 2009

The University of Guelph celebrated Friday the groundbreaking for the Axelrod Building renovation project, which received over $33 million in joint federal and provincial infrastructure funding. The revamped 130,000-square-foot facility will be home to the newly-formed School of Environmental Sciences and related programs of the Ontario Agricultural College and the School of Engineering. The project will reduce UoGuelph's deferred maintenance costs, improve energy efficiency and sustainability, and provide space for the institution's planned increase in graduate enrolment in the environmental sciences.
