Week of July 21, 2017

Prince of Wales Campus

Roofing work is in the final stages for the West Wing of Charlottetown Centre and Adult Education section of Montgomery Hall. Remaining work for Montgomery Hall is the metal fascia at the roof edge. For Charlottetown Centre the final layer of roofing is currently being installed then the metal fascia will be installed. There is about 2-3 weeks of work remaining.

Lintel replacement and repointing of masonry is complete for the Charlottetown Centre. The final piece of work for the masonry contractor is at the east and west wing entrances. For these three areas the deteriorated curved archway is being removed and replaced with new exterior insulation finish system (stucco looking).

Installation of the West Wing windows is near completion. The new windows for Samuel’s Campus Store and the Florence Simmons Performance Hall are set to take place the second week of August. All other remaining windows are set to be installed in the next couple of weeks.

Our summer painter has been busy at the Prince of Wales Campus. Many classrooms on campus have been given a fresh coat of paint.

Eight washrooms at the east Wing of Charlottetown Centre are being renovated. The work will include new flooring, new paint, new toilets and sinks, and new toilet partitions. We are working hard to complete the work as soon as possible, however, it is likely that the washrooms will not be ready at the beginning of the school year.

New porcelain tile flooring is also underway for many Holland College locations across the island. At the Prince of Wales Campus new flooring will make its way to several classrooms at both Charlottetown Centre and Montgomery Hall Adult Education.

Construction Update Week of April 17, 2017

We are about to start major construction work at Charlottetown Centre East wing and West wing. All of the windows will be replaced. As well the exterior masonry will be repointed and window lintels replaced on the top floor windows.

The general plan is to focus initially at the East wing and move to the West wing. At times the work will be noisy.

The masonry contractor is West Masonry. They will be on site starting Tuesday April 18. The first few days will be setting up staging. We will endevour to minimize disruption during class time between now until the end of the normal school year (April 30).
The window contractor is O’Connor Glass and window installation will start early May.

We need to start the work at these times in order to achieve our schedule goals of having all the work complete before the start of the September school year.

Please keep windows closed during the construction activity.

Note: there will not be any window or masonry work happening at the central wing (CLFI) however it may be noisy at times when construction activity is happening in adjacent areas.

This is an important project for Charlottetown Centre and we thank you for your cooperation
