KPU plans to construct barn, improve lighting as part of safety, security enhancements


Kwantlen Polytechnic University is planning to build a pre-fabricated barn on its farm as a safety and security enhancement. The barn would provide the KPU farm with secure storage and an emergency shelter space. “The farm is exposed to the elements and the existing structures are designed to support plant growth so this barn would help if severe weather rolls in,” said KPU VP, Administration Peter Smailes. KPU also shared its plans to upgrade the Tsawwassen Farm School to enable the installation of new lighting, as well as upgrading the external lighting at its Surrey and Langley campuses.
