KPU Langley to get a new roof

Fri, Aug 29, 2014

Langley, B.C. – Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s (KPU) Langley campus has been awarded provincial funding for a major maintenance project to replace all building roofs.

The Ministry of Advanced Education will contribute over $1 million toward the project, which will begin early September.

KPU is contributing matching funds to the project through the university’s deferred maintenance fund, which comprises annual investments reserved for renovation and construction projects that prolong the life of its facilities.

Working on the Langley campus’s new roof is Transwest Roofing, the successful bidder on the project. Four bids were received in total.

The project is expected to complete in February. Steps will be taken to minimize any disruption to Langley campus activities during construction.

More information about KPU Langley’s re-roofing project will be made available online. Watch for updates at
