A year after the groundbreaking ceremony for Carleton’s Nicol Building — the new home for the university’s Sprott School of Business — an impressive concrete and steel structure has emerged from the ground at the bustling construction site on Campus Avenue.

Linda Schweitzer, Sprott’s interim dean, is watching the progress very closely, and very enthusiastically.

Not only was she involved with the planning from the very beginning, alongside former Sprott dean Jerry Tomberlin, she also has a background in building engineering and worked as a construction project manager.

“This is bringing me back to my old world,” says Schweitzer, who knows all the best spots on campus to watch the Nicol Building take shape, from Sprott offices on the eighth floor of Dunton Tower to vantages inside the Health Sciences and Mackenzie buildings. She is a regular visitor to the job site trailer, where she looks at blueprints and checks in with the contractors.
