Construction began in the new year on the largest physical transformation to the Business School since the Odette Building opened in 1991. The Odette School of Business will expand into the south wing of the building; a space that was previously occupied by the University Bookstore and, in doing so, will grow by approximately 20,000 square feet.
Business students, staff and faculty participated in the renovation planning and design which will include the following amenities:

With construction now underway, we are pleased to share images of important renovation milestones as they are reached. View construction pictures here.
Windsor architect firm Architecttura Inc. has been selected to design and coordinate the Odette south wing renovation project.
Elmara Construction, a local contractor, has been chosen as general contractor for this renovation project. Elmara has a long history of working with the University, including renovating space in the Business building that is now the MBA Corporate Centre.
Odette Family Donation
This project has been made possible thanks to the generosity of the LL Odette and the EG Odette families who donated $3 million towards expansion of the School.
Allan Conway, dean of the Odette School of Business, said, “This donation will allow the Odette School of Business to strengthen our students’ leadership development even more and, partly as a consequence, to increase our regional, national, and international impact.”
