Installation of overhead cranes at Physical Activity and Wellness Centre

Please be advised that over the next week there will be a significant increase in activity as two overhead cranes are installed on the Physical Activity and Wellness Centre (PAW) construction site.

Installation of the overhead cranes could begin as early as Friday, March 29 with large trucks entering campus on an hourly basis to deliver the necessary materials.

During the installation, trucks will be located on the west side of 114 Street across from the Education Car Park. Trucks will be exiting via the bus loop onto 112 Street. Delays may occur for those people entering and exiting the Education Car Park.

As a safety measure, pedestrians walking in and around both the construction site and bus loop are strongly advised to obey the directions of construction personnel as well as all directional and way-finding signage.

Once the cranes are installed there will be overhead lifting taking place from the east side of 114 Street in the area of University Hall and south towards 87 Avenue. To ensure your safety, please avoid walking underneath the cranes when they are swinging materials overhead.

For more information on safety tips when encountering a construction site please visit the Facilities and Operations website.
