Lambton College is growing again.
The $7.3-million expansion includes a new reception area and campus shop at the college’s west entrance.
Also planned are two more labs, a classroom, student space, and barrier-free washrooms, confirmed communications director Cindy Buchanan.
The work is to begin this spring.
Accessibility on the footbridge linking the campus building and main parking lot will also be improved.
The project is just the latest in a campus-wide expansion and revitalization over the past five years worth more than $62 million.
Last May, Lambton unveiled a $30-million Nova Chemicals Health and Research Centre, a 60,000-square-foot addition for health sciences and applied research.
It connects to Lambton’s new 40,000-square-foot athletics complex and double gymnasium, with seating for 1,240.
Prior to that, a $14.2-million project created the Centre of Excellence in Energy & Bio-Industrial Technologies, located at college’s south end.
