University of Building Construction?

7 posts in this topic

Are the construction noises on campus bad at all?

 

Two new construction projects are set to commence right beside the law building - St Andrew's Rental to the east, and Law Hub residence to the south. Sure, they'll be great additions for the UBC Class of '18, but until then...

No it is not bad, unless you are in the building they are doing construction on. I am a 5th year commerce student here, and there have been a few times where you couldn't even hear the prof speaking.

The construction has only been disruptive when they were digging/drilling/smashing the ground right outside the windows on the one side. It's only on one side of the building, though, and has ever affected the three classrooms on that side. I haven't had a problem in any of the others.

That's good to hear.

You occasionally get distracting construction noise in the classrooms, but it's the exception and not the rule. As for the library, where many of us do most of our studying (the new lawbrary is fucking awesome), other than occasional work WITHIN the library you can barely hear the construction noise.

 

Much more distracting are the rather frequent tours conducted through the new building for all the donors.
