David J. Cupido Construction of Kingston has been awarded a major construction and renovation contract as part of the largest expansion and renewal project in the history of St. Lawrence College’s Kingston campus.   

The large renovation project has a value of up to $2.29 million and will transform and update 22,000 square feet of space in Glengarry Hall, the four-story building facing Portsmouth Avenue.  Cupido Construction will build the College’s new Innovation Hub and modernize the main entrance, Davies Hall, the student Welcome Centre and the Student Association space.  Work began on May 1 and is expected to be complete by the end of August. 

“The St. Lawrence College community is really excited about this project getting underway and we are delighted that a Kingston company was the successful proponent in a rigorous procurement process,” said Glenn Vollebregt, St. Lawrence College President and CEO. “We look forward to working with the Cupido team to create amazing new space for our students.”

“Cupido Construction is looking forward to this exciting project and to continuing its longstanding relationship with the SLC team, particularly on a project that will serve our community for years to come,” said David Cupido, President, David J. Cupido Construction.  

The Cupido-led renovation is one of the construction initiatives St. Lawrence College is undertaking as part of its Hello Future project.  The next phase of construction will begin in June and include construction of a new Student Life and Innovation Centre with a double gym, a large convention space and a student lounge as well as the relocation of the soccer field and volleyball courts.
