New construction hoarding

As part of the scope of work for the Arbor Room, our contractor will erect new hoarding just west of the main entrance double doors to install new HVAC units on July 17, 2019. The hoarding will be in place until August 20, 2019.

Access to the upper pedestrian walkway running east-west adjacent to our library extending to Soldier’s Tower will be restricted, but access to Soldier’s Tower, Hart House main entrance, bike racks, and the UTM shuttle bus stop won’t be.  

We have requested that the constructor include wayfinding signage to redirect all guests, members, and staff when accessing the Soldier’s Tower and our building.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
