McQuaid expansion work to begin

Demolition is set to begin Thursday at the campus of McQuaid Jesuit school in Brighton for construction of a new $20 million capital expansion project.

The former Jesuit housing, on-campus building will be removed to make room for a 35,000-square-foot Science, Technology, Engineering and Math building, officials announced Wednesday.

The center at the private Catholic school is expected to house STEM-focused classrooms, modern laboratories and an expanded student life area.

McQuaid leaders and school supporters have raised more than $10 million so far, officials said.

Additional details of the expansion are to be announced at a groundbreaking planned for Oct. 27, they added. Project completion is currently set for January 2018.
