T he new kinesiology building is a project that's been on UNB's priority list for more than a decade, and thanks to funding from the federal and provincial governments, the project is currently underway on UNB's Fredericton campus. The 60,000-square-foot, $36-million building will create a nationally significant research cluster focused on health, wellness, physical fitness and health promotion, which will strengthen New Brunswick's role as a leader in preventative health care. It will be adjacent to the west side of The Richard J. CURRIE CENTER, with a connection that will provide a direct link to the Andrew and Marjorie McCain Human Performance Lab. The expected completion date is spring 2018. A number of initiatives are underway to celebrate the new home for the faculty of kinesiology and to commemorate the Lady Beaverbrook Gym, which will be decommissioned in the fall of 2018. A couple of these initiatives include reusing wood from the Lady Beaverbrook Gym in the new building and placing a time capsule in the building's cornerstone.
