The 85,573 sq.ft. Sacred Heart Community School project was built using a multi-phase approach to minimize the disruption to the students, staff and community. Phase 1 consisted of the new school for 600 children, with the ability to add future portables for another 100 children; Phase 2 consisted of a new gym and demolition of the old school, and Phase 3 was the demolition of the old church and construction of the playground.
The new school is a 3 storey structural steel building with a number of program areas including: learning studios, offices, staff room, washrooms, lounge area, library/media centre, breakout rooms, elevator, mechanical room, kitchen, multipurpose/commons area and a 51 child daycare. Throughout construction the existing school remained operational. Careful planning, ensuring safety of all, and skillful execution by Westridge was required to successfully deliver this unique mandate.
