The Calvin McKain Library at the University of Technology (UTech) is to be expanded, as part of the university’s five-year Master Plan to improve the facilities at the campus and provide more comfortable study amenities for the undergraduate and graduate students attending the institution.
Minister of Information, Senator Burchell Whiteman announced the expansion of the library at yesterday’s (March 13) post-Cabinet press briefing, held at Jamaica House.
He told journalists that Cabinet had given its approval for a $25 million contract to be awarded to Jatlin Construction and Associates Limited to carry out the upgrading work.
“The university has been in the process of modernising and expanding its facilities and it wishes now to accommodate more reading rooms for graduate and undergraduate students, expand the archive, provide public restrooms and other facilities, and this is in keeping with its five-year Master Plan,” the Information Minister explained.
Construction on the library is expected to last seven months, and is slated to start later this month.
