The renovation of the UTS dining room is drawing major attention from givers, alumni and non-alumni alike. An unprecedented capital campaign is moving forward. The specific project for the Spring drive is the renovation of the Dining Room.
The Dining Room is the school's central community space. It is the premiere place to continue the renovation work that has brought great student satisfaction with the three totally new dorms.
The renovation of the dining room will improve the public perceptions of UTS. It will demonstrate that UTS is renewing itself, is expanding and has life. And it will enhance the actual experience the students and local community have, three times a day, and constantly as they pass through.
We are contracting a major local architectural firm. It is a full service firm that will oversee all phases of the project to completion. The project includes the beginning of a building master plan that will provide the context in which the dining room design is created. The renovation will be completed in time for the start of the Fall term.
The project, including master planning, design and construction, new furniture, lighting, legal and insurance costs, soup to nuts, will cost $155,000. This is our fundraising goal.
We have $74,000 in pledges at this point, including the commitment by a major donor to match everything received from April 10 until the completion of the campaign.
