Streetscaping to transform area between student centre, Dillon and Memorial halls

Work on a new streetscaping project located in front of the CAW Student Centre between Dillon and Memorial halls is scheduled to begin July 30, according to Dan Castellan, manager of facilities, planning, design and construction.

The Student Centre Courtyard, which will be jointly funded by the Universuity of Windsor Students’ Alliance and the University through its Strategic Priority Fund, will  re-imagine the existing space to make it more user-friendly and serve the ongoing use requirements of students, Castellan says.

“It will open up the space that’s there and make it a better area for students to congregate,” Castellan says. “It’s going to be beautiful—a really great place to hold events—a place that everyone can enjoy.”

He says that the project will include new cement work and wider walkways, new planters, and new perennial plantings.

Construction on the project is expected to be complete by the end of September. During this time, the site will be fenced off, affecting the north-south main sidewalk through campus, as well as the area between Dillon and Memorial halls. Facility Services will post alternate pedestrian routes in the area.

Please direct any questions or concerns to project administrator Mark Rudkin at 519-253-3000, ext. 2168.
