McMaster L.R. Wilson Hall | ? | 5 fl | Complete

Quote:
The Hamilton community can now clearly see McMaster University’s vision for the soon-to-be built L.R. Wilson Hall. The 150,000 square-foot building will be the new home for liberal arts at the University. It is to be LEED certified, and will house McMaster’s Faculty of Humanities and Faculty of Social Sciences.

The building will incorporate new “active” learning classrooms while providing a host of formal and informal learning/studying environments for the faculties’ undergraduate and graduate student body. Included in the building’s program mix will be a new 350-seat Concert Hall, 150-seat multi-purpose Black Box Theatre and 400-seat tiered Lecture Theatre. The building will also engage the community through its proposed Research Centres and Institutes; the Wilson Institute for Canadian History, Gilbrea Centre for Health and Aging, Pathway Institute, and the Indigenous Studies Program. The site is bordered by a buffer of mature tree line along Forsyth Avenue and Sterling Street and the preservation of these reinforcing landscape features will be an important design consideration.

In addition to providing students, faculty and staff with state-of-the-art teaching, learning and research space, L.R. Wilson Hall will include associated spaces, community outreach spaces, classrooms, research areas, graduate program areas, student support spaces and an underground parking lot.

The building will also house social sciences and humanities research space, experiential education offices, a centre for policy analysis and both the Gilbrea Institute and Institute for Globalization and the Human Condition, which, along with the Indigenous Studies Program, fall under the Faculty of Social Sciences. - source

Why is there an opp vehicle on campus?

Also, they originally called for a september 2015 opening. Doesnt look like that will be the case. Are they going for a january 2016 opening to coincide with the beginning of a new semester?

nice progress. looking like a september 2016 opening? I assume once this wraps up we will have the new engineering building addition plus that massive residence/ multipurpose building by the tennis courts to watch rise

I see the last photo includes a portion of MDCL. will this new building be connected via indoor walkway to MDCL?
