PROJECT DETAILS:

Project Description:

The approximately 18,000 square metres Kitsilano Secondary School Renewal project will be a neighbourhood learning centre that will provide specialty classrooms and fitness, arts and library facilities. Key features of the three story replacement school include the construction of a new academic wing; an all-weather playing field; three gymnasiums; a 350-seat theatre; green space for student learning; and space designed for individualized support and collaborative group work. A key element of the project is the preservation of the main historical facade that dates back to 1927. 1,500 students in grades 8-12 will benefit from a new 21st century facility learning environment that will be designed to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold equivalency.
