June 2014 – Halifax Regional School Board students participating in the Building Futures for Youth program were treated to a behind the scenes tour of the site of the new CBC Building in Halifax. 31 Students along with a handful of HRSB and NSCC staff, all equipped head to toe in proper personal protective equipment, got a first-hand view of all that goes into a major commercial construction project in progress.
A BIG thank you to both CBC and BIRD Construction for providing the students with a great morning and a fantastic learning experience!
