This project consists of an addition and renovation to the existing Taro Hall at Brock University for the Goodman School of Business (GSB).

The project involves three-storey additions on the west and east ends of the existing building and a new major interior circulation route at the ground floor that connects the two additions.

The west side addition includes a two-storey atrium that provides Goodman School of Business with a new identity facing the Brook Mall, as well as, much needed space for day-to-day student study and special event receptions. The existing Taro Hall will be fully renovated as part of the project.

Renovations to the classroom areas of the existing facility include upgraded lighting and finishes, and sprinkler replacement. The project will be phased to accommodate occupation during construction. The new west and east additions were completed in the first phase of construction to create swing space for faculty offices and teaching space. Renovations and ‘refresh’ of existing spaces within Taro Hall were completed in stages while the new west wing served as ‘swing space’ during the renovations. Upgrades to the building included a new security system and devices to meet university standards including CCTV, Code Blue stations and proximity card readers.
