On Campus with Operations & Resilience


Campus Work Continues

The Operations & Resilience team continues to advance a series of maintenance, infrastructure and front-line service projects, consistent with the 2020/21 capital plan and in parallel with a myriad of other operational activities.

Project highlights include:

  • improvements to campus accessibility through replacement of outdated fire alarm bells, with a combination of horns and strobes;
  • upgrades to manual bathroom faucets, switching to motion sensors, to bathroom door handles changing to door levers;
  • installation of accessible ramps at houses 16, 27 and 28;
  • repairs to the fish ladder and drainage in the Japanese gardens;
  • installation of four new electric vehicle charging stations (EVCS) in the newly opened parking spaces in the LIC plaza, bringing the total number of EVCS parking spaces across campus to 14; and
  • preventive maintenance and compliance inspections including of Hatley Castle first floor painting, maintenance at the Recreation Centre, roof de-mossing, and building system assessments.

At the same time, construction continues in and around the Learning and Teaching Auditorium. With some adjusted scheduling, and following the direction given by provincial health authorities, crews continue to work on the site each day. The associated geoexchange project is well underway; this new and innovative system will be put into operation when the LTA opens, helping to reduce RRU’s carbon footprint. And, upgrades to adjacent landscaping and the connection to the Sherman Jen Building will start to become more visible in a few weeks’ time.

The Ops & Resilience Team looks forward to sharing the progress and improvements that are being put into place as we move into fall at Royal Roads!
