Student dorm gets a facelift at Terrace Campus

TERRACE The Terrace Campus of Northwest Community College (NWCC) will offer improved accommodations to students thanks to work being done this summer on the Kalum Lake Dormitory. The dorm, originally built in 1968, is undergoing a facelift and renovation this summer. The project involves replacing the buildings envelope and washroom/shower wing. The end result will see newer washrooms, new siding and re-insulation. The $500,000-renovation is being managed by locally-operated David Oleksewich Consulting Firm using subtrades, some of which employ NWCC carpentry student apprentices. This upgrade will greatly improve the residence facilities for students in Terrace, said Cindy Harmel, NWCCs Director of Facilities and Maintenance. Not only will the Kalum Lake Dorm enhance the college experience for those students who are in residence but the state-of-the-art renovations will see a energy cost savings, too. NWCC President Stephanie Forsyth adds she feels the work was needed to bring the building up to the high standard of educational choices offered by the College. Work is scheduled for completion by the end of September.
