By September of this year, the Natural Sciences Centre is going to look and feel a little bit bigger.
A classroom extension, to hold 650 people, will be added to the Natural Sciences Centre beside the Biological & Geological Sciences building, said David Riddell, director of Western's physical plant.
Riddell said the builiding would be similar to the Centre and would blend into the rest of the area. "It will have top notch [audio-visual] equipment and it will be a theatre type setting," he added.
Building the extension was a response to a demand from the faculty of science for a larger classroom. "The aim is to have construction completed, so it will be in use by September 2000," Riddell said. "If not, the extension won't be in use until January 2001."
