The Government of Alberta is investing $149 million over four years to restore the University of Alberta’s historic Dentistry/Pharmacy Building.
The renovated building will serve as the university’s new administrative hub, where all administrative processes including Office of the Registrar will be relocated. It will also provide an increase in student service space to 17,800 square metres and free up room across campus that will be repurposed for student learning areas.
Along with the long-term benefits, the project will create an estimated 18,750 worker-days of employment for the regional economy.
The restoration of the Dentistry/Pharmacy Building will remove $78.7 million in deferred maintenance for the building.
