Fanshawe College's downtown campus phase II project will see the beginning of a major construction milestone.

After months of preparation work to temporarily brace the Dundas Street limestone façade and the neighbouring common walls, the College is beginning the next phase of the project. Over the course of the next month, demolition will begin to carefully remove the remainder of the structure. The red brick façade from Dundas Street has been removed, catalogued and stored with a plan for reinstallation in 2017.

Fanshawe is committed to making every effort to restore the historical Dundas Street façade consistent with the approved Heritage Conservation Plan.

During this period of demolition, there will be an increase in noise during regular working hours and in construction traffic entering and exiting the construction zone on Carling Street.

Carling Street is closed to through traffic and the Dundas Street north sidewalk will remain closed until the completion of demolition.

The new building will be a game-changer for London, bringing 1,600 more students into the heart of the city. When complete, the new downtown campus, including CDPA, will have a total of 2,000 students.
