A message from BCITSA School of Construction Chair Brian Harvey
The BCIT Student Association has been very busy over the first few months of the school year. Starting this week, the second floor of the building SE2 will become a construction zone.
The result of a process that started over two years ago, the project has been a long time coming. Working with BCIT, students, and architects we have developed a design for brand new student space directly next to the Great Hall.
This project has been something that I have seen almost from the beginning and am now closely involved with the decisions regarding everything from the finishes to the furniture. The new space will see the addition of plenty of meeting rooms, study space, and student service spaces that will be available to all BCIT students.
The renovation will see the addition of spaces on the third floor of the building in the years to come. We have been extremely excited about making building SE2 centre for students on-campus. Throughout construction, Stand Central and the Uconnect Resource Centre will be open as usual.
On top of this, I hope to be able to expand on the student lounge spaces that were developed in the summer of 2011 as well as branch it out to the satellite campuses in order to provide them with additional student services that that they are paying for. This is something that will hopefully be developed for the future expansion of the BCIT Student Association.[hr]
