Demolition Begins

As of the third week in July, items that were salvageable were removed from Hamber Hall and interior demolition was completed.

As preparation for exterior demolition, windows on buildings near the demolition site were boarded up to protect them from damage. Trees and shrubs were removed and as many as possible were relocated to other areas of the campus.

On July 25, 2013, major exterior demolition began with the second floor of Hamber Hall. Photos of the demolition in progress are posted below.

Anticipated Community Impact:

Sound from the demolition will be noticeable to our neighbours, but will be kept within the limits required by the City of Winnipeg. Community members will continue to see construction vehicles coming to and from the campus as debris is cleared from the site.

Expected Timeframe:
  • Demolition started at 10 AM on July 25, 2013
  • Demolition and concrete cutting should be complete by the second week in August (slated for  August 10, 2013).
  • Pile driving piles is planned for an August 12, 2013 start.

Next Steps:
Pile driving is the next stage of the project. When this begins, noise levels will increase and will be noticeable in the surrounding area. Please contact us at the coordinates below with any concerns or comments.
