The University of Windsor will issue a call this week for contractors to convert the University Bookstore space in the Odette Building to classrooms, meeting rooms and study and gathering spaces for business students.
According to architectural designs, the $3-million project will include:
- a 100-seat tiered classroom;
- a 60-seat tiered classroom;
- a seminar and lounge area;
- student study areas and break-out meeting rooms.
In addition, three team project centres will provide space for regional economic development initiatives.
Under the plan approved by the board, the Bookstore will vacate the space in October and construction will be complete by spring 2013.
