Saturday shutdown of EV and LB buildings due to city infrastructure work

The city will cut water as early as 7 a.m. on June 10, impacting key building systems

Two major Concordia buildings will be closed on Saturday, June 10, 2023. The Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Integrated Complex (EV) and the W.J. McConnell Building (LB) will be closed as of 7 a.m. They will reopen after the City of Montreal has completed infrastructure work, slated to last most of the day.

The closure is necessary because there will be no municipal water going to the two Concordia buildings, something which impacts washrooms and other key facilities. As a result, only those who have obtained permission to be in the buildings or have an emergency need will be granted access. They will also have to show a piece of valid Concordia I.D.

Those who need to access the Guy-De Maisonneuve Building can still do so on Saturday but they will not be able to transit through the EV Building during the closure.

Once the city work has been completed and building infrastructure verified by Concordia, the EV and LB will reopen. However, because the city cannot yet provide an approximate time, community members should avoid the two buildings until Sunday morning.
