Infrastructure Ontario and Seneca College have issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) for the first phase of the Seneca King Campus expansion in King City, York Region.
The project will be developed on a design, build and finance basis. Interested parties must submit their proposals on or before 9 July 2014.
The number of full-time students at King Campus will grow by 1,450 to a total of more than 5,000.
The project includes:
- a new academic building with approximately 25 new classrooms, computer labs, specialty labs for training health care practitioners, library, learning commons and student study space;
- a new student centre including a multi-purpose athletic and recreation space with a gymnasium, fitness centre, informal study areas and event spaces, partially funded by the Seneca Student Federation and the Student Athletic Association; and,
- upgrades to Garriock Hall - the main existing academic building - and to existing site services.
Animal health, social services, policing and public safety, nursing and recreational studies are among the programs offered at King Campus, the former Eaton family estate, located on 282 hectares (700 acres) that include a lake, forested areas and fields within the Oak Ridges Moraine. Stewardship of these natural areas will continue to be a priority for the College.
