Work is underway at St.FX for one of the largest structural overhauls at the University. On Thursday, EllisDon Construction and Building Services was awarded the job for the design and construction of the new Mulroney Hall. The University sifted through 7 potential contractors, and selected EllisDon with an estimated price tag of 41 million dollars.
VP of Finance Andrew Beckett says construction of the building and Xaverian Commons sparks excitement through the university and greater Antigonish area:
Beckett says a large portion of the campus will be under construction through the summer months, creating delays and taped off areas. The work on Mulroney Hall is expected to be completed by early 2019.
