Demolition of the Clark residences on Sunset Avenue south of Wyandotte Street is scheduled to proceed next week, and the contractor responsible is taking steps to minimize disruption to those living and passing nearby.
The University plans to return the site to green space for the enjoyment of the campus community and its neighbours.
The structure demolition and site restoration is expected to take six to eight weeks. Crews from the Jones Group will work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, ensuring all demolition ends before dusk.
While there will be noise and dust associated with the work, the contractors will employ dust suppression measures, as well as the abatement of any hazardous materials in accordance with provincial law.
Direct questions or concerns to project co-ordinator Mark Rudkin of Facility Services at 519-253-3000, ext. 2168.
