Audio Visual Systems in Macleod Building Classrooms
The Macleod Building is undergoing a major renovation which includes the creation of 8 General Teaching Space (GTS) classrooms.

Unfortunately, the project is experiencing COVID-related delays in obtaining certain key components of the new AV systems for the classrooms.
